Yesterday afternoon I received several phone calls and emails from friends with the news that a male Scarlet Tanager was visiting the backyard of a couple of bird watchers here in Saskatoon.
Of course, I had to be there and thanks to the kind hospitality of the house owners and the friends I went with, I got great views of this life bird through the main dining room window.
This is only the 7th record for the Saskatoon area in 50 years.
What an absolute treat ! I have only waited 7 years to see one :-)
