This is the only bird I could find in my files that had the same colors of the Flaming Hibiscus I posted earlier this morning and since I didn’t want this to be a birdless day on Onthewingphotography I worked this Western Tanager file up in a hurry.

This Western Tanager was photographed last summer at Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge in the Centennial Valley of Beaverhead County, Montana. I sure wish I had been able to get closer to this flame-colored bird, the cows there allowed me to get much closer.

Have a super day!
