Beautiful Scarlet Tanager In Our Backyard On Cape Cod!


I was working away on my Blog yesterday afternoon when something red caught my eye. I looked out into our backyard and saw this gorgeous Scarlet Tanager sitting on a branch in one of the trees. I have only seen one once before at Bushy Point in Connecticut many years ago and never here on Cape Cod.

I had my camera nearby so I clicked away. He was only here for a few moments and then he flew away.

What a wonderful treat to see in my own backyard! WOW! He’s gorgeous, don’t you think? Another one of those “was there at the right time, with camera nearby” moments!

We’ve been keeping count of how many different species of birds that we’ve seen in our backyard since we moved in a year ago… we’re up to 38 different species!

  1. He’s gorgeous! Given the number of species you’re seeing, they must be “tweeting” each other about you! 🙂
