Red Crossbill

We had a new bird in the yard yesterday, and after some searching, I believe it is a red crossbill (female).  I wish the photos were a bit sharper, but I got these with my zoom fully extended from some distance away; I was more concerned with identification than having a perfectly sharp photo.  The crossbill is a year round resident of my area, so hopefully I will get more opportunities in the future.
