Around 1PM today a flock of tanagers paraded through our garden. Their showy spring plumage–males especially–are an unavoidable public display. Somewhere there must have been a bass drum and some trombones in the background. Seeing them you immediately lin e up along the edge of their street and gawk.

At least one of the tanagwers was a female; one male was dripping wet having enjioyed our bird bath after a long night of migration. They stayed up in the trees, ignoring our feeders.
