Bright Western Tanagers moving through

Like many other neotropical migrants being seen now in the lower elevations of SE Colorado, Western Tanagers are just stopping over on their way to their higher elevation breeding grounds. The first Western Tanager I saw was 5 days ago and it was female. This is one of the two males I saw this morning on the Canon City Riverwalk, the first males I have seen this year--what colorful birds they are.

I have several more pics of recent birds to post, but have been busy birding due to lots of migration activity. I will try to get a few more pics posted tonight and tomorrow so stay tuned. SeEtta
