Western Tanager

Perhaps the most colorful of the summer visitors to our local tree-tops is the Western Tanager. Although the male sports conspicuous bright colors we hear him much more often than we see him. However, once or twice per day, we are treated to an occasional streak of color passing through the tress and every now and again a nice long view of these colorful birds of the summer forest.

    1. We hear both the male and female calling to each other in the tree almost all day long…chib-it…chib-it.

      It’s nice to know they are there even if you can not see the.
