Western Tanager Spotted Sunday In Los Alamos

This Western Tanager was spotted Sunday in the backyard of a residence near Canyon Glen Road in Los Alamos. According to allaboutbirds.org, these birds live in open woods all over the west, particularly among evergreens, where they often stay hidden in the canopy. Nevertheless, they’re a quintessential woodland denizen in summertime, where they fill the woods with their short, burry song and low, chuckling call notes. Photo by Greg Noeninckx
