Colorful Birds

I thought I would share a couple of photos from a few years ago. I am not usually a birder; they almost have to land on my head for me to notice but sometimes I luck out. I saw the Western Tanager along the Fifth Water Trail to the hot springs back in 2008. Just a flash of orange and yellow, but we followed and waited and were rewarded with a good view. Only a week later, as we were hiking back down the Mt. Olympus Trail, a Lazuli Bunting landed just in front of us.

I had one of those blue birds feeding on my feeder in my backyard. Beautiful bird. So glad to find out what kind it is.
