Western Tanagers

Jeff Acuff

This spring I was seeing western tanagers almost daily throughout the month of May in my yard, sometimes in surprising numbers, leading me to wonder if they might nest locally.  Then June came and the tanagers disappeared entirely.

This morning, reviving my contemplation of local breeding, I found 2 western tanagers, one male and one female/juvenile type, high in a eucalyptus tree visible from my yard.   

Good Birding,
