Spotted this week

I didn’t have my camera with me when I saw some Blue Grey Tanagers while horseback riding on Sunday.

So these are not my photos.  But they were identifiable by the brilliant Copen Blue across their wings and back.

The birds were foraging on bushes in the low land pasture about a kilometer from the beach.

    These birds are very pretty. I used to raise finches & had some Cordon Blues that were similiar but brighter blue & the males had scarlett cheeks, really beautiful. A friend made a huge whiskey barrel into a cage that had for many years. When I was moving I had 3 male friends attempt to pick it up & put it in the moving truck & the rotted bottom fell out & they all flew away! They thought I would be horrified, instead I felt released from the responsibility for their continued care. We spread a large bag of seed all over the backyard & I wished them well. I’m totally down with the free birds!

      I hope they made it in Southern California. So beautiful to see them in the garden.
