crossbills -- Red and White-winged

on our first trip up Mount Washington saw a flock of crossbills and Pine Siskins on the road and realised one was a fine male White-winged but they flew off at a distance -the male White-winged was seen singing at the top of a tall pine but then flew off -- that was it for White-winged but a presumed family of Red Crossbills were seen on the second visit and landed right next to me on the road with the food begging juvs accompanied by a few different adults -- these Red Crossbills appear to be particularly fine billed and so maybe larch feeders?
