Loxia curvirostra Linnaeus, 1758

The Red Crossbill (Loxia curvirostra) is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae, also known as the Common Crossbill in Eurasia. Crossbills have distinctive mandibles, crossed at the tips, which enable them to extract seeds from conifer cones and other fruits. Source: Wikipedia
