Scarlet Tanager


This Scarlet Tanager stopped in for a mere moment.  You never know who will show up during the spring migration.

      This bird was a rare treat! It showed up the same day as the Red-headed Woodpecker, so I was feeling especially spoiled by God that day! 🙂

    What a wonderful capture! I have only sighted a tanager once, but I’m keeping my eyes open.

  4. Stunning colour! What a lucky day 🙂

  5. Another one of your avian supermodels, I see! 🙂 Gorgeous, as always, Kathy!

      Why thank you, “Miss Chatsworth”…(I realize that I don’t know your true identity)…I am hoping a few more migrators make their way through my backyard!

  6. What a gorgeous colour. He definitely stands out. Beautiful Kathy.

  7. What a blessing to get one in good range of your camera. We see these birds fairy often in northern Michigan, but they love to hang out at the very top of the tree canopy, making photos nearly impossible! Great shot, once again!
