Flying With The Cars

May 17, 2015  •  24 Comments

A Yellow-Bellied Flycatcher was flying with the cars catching flies. I also finally got photos of a Hepatic Tanager, a red bird that I usually only see high in the trees out of range of my lens. I also got photos of a Western Tanager — I don't recall see them around much before, be we have several of them this year.

"Is that a fly I see buzzing around?"
