Flame-colored Tanager pictures



Ok, I'm still stuck on that special day at Madera Canyon. I already told about how I found this bird so I'll just sit back and let you enjoy. The above photo is the very first time I saw the bird and the first look I got of it.



The rest of the pictures are from when we found the bird again.



It was one stunning bird and an awesome 500th lifer!!!!!!!

That is soooo obviously a hybrid...

Well, hybrid or not, I assume you have now got your 500th bird. So congratulations.

Thanks for the congrats! The bird is a pure Flame-colored Tanager and not a hybrid so I can happily check it off as my 500th lifer!
