Tide of Tanagers...(High Island, Texas): 11 April 2010

A late afternoon "tide of tanagers" swept into Boy Scout Woods, although sadly the mulberry trees were not quite ready for them yet (perhaps due to the harsh winter experienced in these parts). This included both Summer Tanagers like this glowing male (photo), and vibrant male Scarlet Tanagers too.

That Summer Tanager is almost too intense red to believe. Even so, I cannot see calling them Cardinals. Although there is a clear difference between North American Tanagers, and South American Tanagers. Why upset the apple cart by constantly changing things around?
