Leave it to God to give you the best Mother’s Day of all. These are pictures of a gorgeous Scarlet Tanager–arriving right on Mother’s Day. I haven’t seen one of these beauties in at least 8 years. Wow! Breathtaking.
This has been a banner bird year for us so far: Cardinals, Blue Jays, Blue Birds, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks, Baltimore Orioles, Indigo Buntings, Black Capped Carolina Chickadees, Nuthatches, Sparrows, Gold finches, Purple finches, Blackbirds, Mourning doves, Red headed woodpeckers, flickers, red bellied woodpeckers, downy woodpeckers, hairy woodpeckers, and Cedar Waxwings-and I am sure there will be many more to come.
