Default Western tanager

Finally got a western tanager this afternoon! They've been around the area for a while... lots of folks reporting sightings... and someone reported seeing one at nearby park yesterday, so I figured I'd go see if it was still there. Sure enough, about 45 minutes after I got there and picked a spot to watch, it showed up, landed in the top of a tree about 25 yards away, and gave me time for about 2 dozen shots. Even turned around to give me a look at both sides! The only other time I'd actually seen a western tanager in this area was 10 years ago, and it was way up in a fir tree after sunset, so I didn't get a photo. Getting this little guy today made my whole week!


Out where the rivers like to run, I stand alone, and take back something worth remembering...
