Summer Tanager at Marston Canyon

This morning I had a very cooperative male Summer Tanager at Marston Canyon near Cypress and Richmond. The flowering eucs along Richmond right where Cypress trees out are a magnet for Bullocks Orioles, etc. The tanager was sitting on a branch in the sun nearby for at least five minutes, just chillin'. Rebound two hours later at the same location. Best views are from the road looking straight across into the trees.

Other migrants in the canyon include black headed grosbeak, Nashville warbler, Wilson's warbler, a ton of Pac Slope fly catchers, and a herd of scaly breasted munia.
