I never tire of the brilliant color of a Male Western Tanager. We recently got to see a nice group of 5-6 males hanging out in trees of a thickly forested area. They were busy moving about foraging but luckily we did get a nice photo or two when they moved between the branches whereas the females although present remained quite hidden.

  1. It’s always a special day when one comes across a male western tanager in breeding. And that you found more than one and got a great, crisp photo too — how very wonderful.

    1. He sure is and as an aside it is pretty amazing is that even a bird as brightly colored as this guy can blend into their surroundings so well you have a hard time seeing let alone photographing them. Hope you have a wonderful day.

feedback welcome
