Western Tanager #2477

White Rock, NM

Piranga ludoviciana

This bird has been visiting in the last two or three days, but not staying anywhere long enough to get a decent photograph. I am pretty sure she is a female Western Tanager, with yellow and white wing bars and a yellow beak. She is a definite sign that the birds know the days are getting shorter and the weather is not as hot as it has been.
