Summer's Delight - Western Tanager
Limited Edition of 2500 | Artist Proof 250
Alighting for mere seconds on a delicate willow branch, a rare glimpse of the kaleidoscope brilliance of a male western tanager stands out among Rocky Mountain summering birds. This songbird plays tricks with the eye. It's coloring, the red in particular, is owed to the tanager's diet containing rich sources of the pigment rhodoxanthin. Within weeks this male will fly on, returning to wintering grounds south into Mexico and Costa Rica, tropical environments where one may not be quite as surprised to see such a colorful little bird.
