I was hiking near the South Mesa Trailhead today right off the South Boulder Creek at 39°56’22.14″N 105°15’36.86″W when I spotted this colorful little Western Tanager.  He would seem better suited to a jungle than to Boulder. Check out the link to The Cornell Lab of Ornithology to learn all about (and hear from) this handsome fellow..

Send me your photos of Tanagers and I’ll post them here!Western Tanager

    I was glad to see your shot of the Tanager. I thought i saw a pair at Twin Lakes in Gunbarrel.
    The fall migration is a great time to be a little more aware of the bird life while walking.

    Thanks for the link to Cornell
