Abstract: The Common Crossbill is a very rare visitor to the Maltese Islands but in some years irruptions and small influxes occur; on such occasions it is frequent, and its metallic call often heard. Unfortunately when such irruptions occur most of the birds are trapped or shot and it is difficult to make proper counts and observations of such birds. The last known irruption took place during summer of 1990 (Coleiro & Attard Montalto 1992-1994) and the foiiO'Ning is a summary of sightings, mainly as observed by local birdwatchers.
