I am on my way for yet another business trip. Alas, this one will not allow for any squeezed-in birding. I know I have been absent from my much-loved bird blog for a long while, but hang in there with me, this is my last trip of the year.
Let me offer you a shot from my Arizona trip. While in Madera Canyon at the Madera Kubo B&B (incredible birding mecca) I was able to drink my fill of this Hepatic Tanager. Mmm, wait, that sounds sort of vampiric. Let me re-phrase, I was able to stare at it for long periods. Better perhaps, but not as poetic. It sat in this tree for most of the afternoon, flitting from branch to branch but always in full camera view. Gorgeous, isn’t it?
