Tanager





I believe these are Summer Tanagers.
Notice the female on the same branch as the male in this last shot.
All of these photos are heavily cropped.


The Tanagers are all over the place at
Joe Wheeler State Park Golf Course
Rogersville, Alabama, U. S. A.

Oh Amy! Another RED bird for me to love. Having no cardinals where we live, i feasted on them during our recent travels. These are worth companions for my love affair with red birds.
