A Western Tananger visits Ojo Caliente, New MexicoThis beauty visited our place in Ojo Caliente for a few days this spring. He was socializing around our feeders with his cronies which include Black-headed Grosbeaks, Evening Grosbeaks, Juniper Titmouse, Lesser Goldfinch, Doves and Canyon Towhees. We even had a rare visit for several days by a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, image to come.
