Barbara-- Him I could take a decent photo of, but his parents were masters of avoiding the lens!Kathy-- I thought so, too. Now if I could just get a definite ID on him!
He's an adorable little guy. Nothing like him in Illinois. He has a finch like face... any idea what family he is from?
The ID on this little birdie was bugging me all day. So when I got home from work tonight I hauled out my Crossley ID Guide and I think he's a young male Western Tanager. But I've never actually met one before. Phew.
Leslie-- I really appreciate the ID!!
Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
