You are good and I really enjoy your bird pictures. Funny how they get more interesting as one grows older.

we had more western tanagers in the valley during migration than I've ever seen b4. I think the coool rainy weather discouraged the "food" source in the hills of the mountains. So, the birds stopped off and ate everyone's cherry crop.

But, oh so beautiful and lovely to hear.

I always loved tanagers. Nice captures.

Great shots! I have seen scarlet tanagers here in WV. They were in my yard, but I only saw them that one year. :-( Hopefully they and the mockingbird will return!

Nice. They are so good, in my experience, at SOUNDING like they're super close and ultra-obvious re: location but I stare and stare (usu. into the tree) and commonly cannot find them. However, when you do, you are richly rewarded.

Lois said...

She's gorgeous!

nice color, where did you find it?

Larry said...

Great capture Jill. The female is so often overlooked in this species because of the multi and brightly colored male, but I think she is just as beautiful! I love that tinge of orange in the eyebrow.
