another Scarlet Tanager. I started to go to the marshy area, walked through the kitchen, looked out the window and spotted these 2 beauties. The male and female grosbeaks have been here for a couple of days, and the scarlet tanager showed up this afternoon.

beauties both! If I had to pick a favorite, I'd go for the tanager, because we seldom see them here.

Two splendid shots of two lovely birds. The tanager especially is full of subtle tones.

Beautiful shots... we get both these birds, but few and far between.

Thanks Nancy....It would be wonderful if both of these stayed here all year long.

Thank you Jack....this is the 2nd tanager that's showed up within the last week. They're really beautiful birds.

Thanks DB This is the first year I've ever seen the scarlet tanagers anywhere around here.

Thank you Karen.....the end of last week there was a flock of about 100 of the scarlet tanagers on Dauphin Island, and since I'm directly north of there by 13 miles....I think I'm just on a streak of luck with them picking my yard and my feeders to drop in on. And yes, I'm jealous of your warbler. :D

Gary....If I could send you one I certainly would, everybody needs one of these in their yard at least once. Cardinals are a dull red compared to these.

Thanks Mitch.....The one from last week has already headed your way, he should be there shortly.:D

Thanks Paul.....just glad I didn't leave for the marsh when I thought about going....I would have missed both of them.

Good shooting, Sharon. Now, if you are quite finished with 'my' grosbeak, send him on his way. He's due here now.

Thanks Harvey.......bad news, I'm not sending them back LOL. I love these grosbeaks and would love to keep them all year. Don't know what's going on with all the birds this year and "first time visitors to my yard".... I had a hooded warbler out there late this afternoon but couldn't grab the camera fast enough.
