Western Tanager - Meadow Lake, BC
I had an early morning encounter with this very talkative summer resident which was one of the highlights of my trip to Meadow Lake Guest Ranch. The Summer Tanager is the only Tanager we see on a regular basis here on the west coast. This male was foraging and signing away along the roadside at Meadow Lake and didn't seem at all bothered that he was the star of the film. For those of you listening, you can also hear an Olive-sided Flycatcher and a Least Flycatcher singing in the background.
