Artist's Description


10-18-10

Taken at the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum
Aviary using a Powershot SX10IS
Western Tanager breeds in coniferous and mixed woodlands, especially with pines, spruces, firs aspens and oaks often at high elevations. It is found in a great variety of habitats in migration, from desert scrubs to backyard feeders.
In winter this species turns up rarely but regular at feeders in the Southeast.

INTERESTING FACTS

  • The Western Tanager breeds farther north than any other member of its mostly tropical family, breeding to nearly 60° N in the Northwest Territories.
  • The red pigment in the face is not produced by the bird but is acquired through their diet of insects that themselves acquire it from plants.
  • This species was first recorded on the Lewis and Clark expedition(1803-1806).
  • A group of tanagers are collectively known as a “season” of tanagers.

VOICE SONG a 5-phrased set of burry whistles very similiar to Scarlet Tanager. CALL a rattling prttle-ik, less incisive than Summer Tanager.
