Summer Tanager

It's spring... in South Texas, spring is almost over! I've mowed the wildflowers when they started looking pitiful. The trees are bursting with new growth. The hummingbirds are fighting over the feeder. We are in a pretty good migration path for birds heading north from Mexico. It's really fun to notice the birds that are just visiting. This year, we spotted a pair of Summer Tanagers. The red almost had me dismiss the male as just a cardinal. We have tons of those. But then, I saw the yellow. Time to grab the binoculars. Turns out there were two! I'd love it if they became residents, but alas, not likely. Good luck, visitors!!!
