Outside my Window April 26


Moment in Time

Tanager? 


I heard him singing - loud and so pretty. He wouldn't pose for me, of course, but I took his picture anyway. If this is a tanager it is probably the second one I have ever seen. 

This has been the most surreal yet wonderful day, even though I haven't felt well. My mom got good news yesterday about her cancer, and so today I am blissfully happy. :)

  39. Happy to hear about your Mom's good news. And I am pretty sure that is a Scarlet Tanager. A friend told me she just saw one in Illinois, very rare sighting for that part of the country. She was so happy...just like you.
