Pretty Bird


I think this is a female Western Tanager feasting on one of our elderberry bushes. Wish she would bring her boyfriend around, as the male is one of the prettiest US birds.

I'll have to agree about the Western Tanager. I only seen one once, many years ago. He was sort of like a canary with a bright red head.

I'm sure she'll bring her boyfriend around, but you know how teenagers are (Western or Eastern). She may just run out to his car when he drives up instead of making him ring the doorbell and introducing him to you.
