Western Tanager

I have lived in the Santa Cruz Mountains for 39 years and have only seen a Western Tanager once.On a recent photography workshop in Carmel Valley I had the experience of photographing one the most beautiful of all birds. Of course it meant that I was up at 5 am, in a blind from 6 am til 12:30, and quiet all that time. If you know me and my gift to gab then you know the challenge I experienced.


  1. I live in Colorado up against the Foothills and just had the pleasure of seeing this beautiful bird.!
