This is a Western Tanager
This is a Western Tanager photographed in Beale Park on Monday, 2 April
2012. Migrant or undetected overwintering bird, speculate away.
It was not a starling imitating a tanager, it was not a figment of my
imagination. Please direct comments on the bird directly to me.
Also on my Flickr site find a photo of a Pacific-slope Flycatcher that I
heard calling confirming PSFL not "Western". This bird was seen around noon
at KNWR near the end of the new auto tour route in a salt cedar near the
Report will be uploaded soon to eBird.
