Male Summer Tanager

Uploaded by: Dannykillsbugs

Sunday July 24, 2011

Russellville, KY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: This is a exceedingly rare sighting for me here in southern Kentucky. I have only seen this bird a few times in my life. I wish I had been a little better prepared as I saw the pair and took some very hasty shots of both..but nether the less, I am thrilled just for this chance to photograph them.

Congratulations. I know how elusive these birds are. I can hear them up high in the oaks across the road from my home, but rarely ever get to see one. I did see one down in Murrell's Inlet at Brookgreen Gardens last week, but he was up so high I couldn't get a good enough shot to post.

Thank you guys!!! @Nikongranny, there is supposed to be Scarlet Tanagers here too, but I have yet to see one. I was thrilled to see this pair of the Summer variety.

What a lucky capture! There are supposed to be scarlet tanagers in the state park not far from here. Of all the photo trips we have made through there, only once did we see one and too far away to get a great shot like this. 10 from SW Iowa

The cardinals get all the red-bird glory, but
this is a very beautiful bird, too! We don't
have either red bird in Colorado so I love to
see photos of them! Great shot!
Congratulations!
