The Western Tanager was enjoying the fruits of a tree in Wee Stinky Glen 
yesterday morning (March 9) shortly after 9 am, on a branch above the path that 
goes by the bench near the upper entrance of the Cornell Store.  A few photos:

When I first noticed it, I was drawn to look up by singing.  The Western 
Tanager was on a branch close to a House Finch.  A set of more photos is at

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] please keep reporting Western Tanager

The WESTERN TANAGER is still being reported via eBird daily on Cornell 
University campus in the same area - the alcove at the east entrance to the 
underground Cornell Store (good for sunning and eating fruits of vines on the 
wall), the south and west sides of Day Hall (whose inhabitants put seed on the 
windowsills), the nearby stream known as Wee Stinky Glen and the fruiting trees 
over it, with forays to the south side of Sage Chapel.

Please keep reporting this bird. Also, any photographers or observers of 
detail, please let me know if you believe you are seeing progression of molt. 
I'd love to see the bird with more adult or breeding male characteristics such 
as red around the face or darker back feathers.
