What a nice selection of birds in your area. I hope to get out on a birding adventure in western NY this weekend.

Hello Neighbor,

We live on Mt. Tabor and a few days ago a flock of Western Tanagers arrived in the tree in our front yard. They are still there; both male and female. I have never seen them before. Beautiful!

Multiple Western tanagers seen in Raleugh Hills 5/8/11. Eating bugs and at suet feeder all day which is a first since I've been here (2000)

They are gorgeous.
