Western Tanager

A few pictures I took of Western Tanagers at Fernhill Wetlands on May 14th. It was easily the most I had seen at one time and perhaps the most I had ever seen. The numbers of Western Tanagers were up considerably this spring migration based on my own observations and the postings on birding server lists in the area. I'm not sure why, but it sure was fun.


  1. Yeah it's been crazy... I have heard even non-birders commenting on seeing tanagers in their yards for the first time.

  2. Superb images of a fantastic looking bird.
