Summer Tanager (WooHoo!)

Did you catch a hint of excitement from my post title?  A drive through Blackwater NWR yesterday provided me a new bird lifer, the Summer Tanager.  I photographed him from the car window.  And then I did my seated happy dance.

New lifers always cause a happy dance, don’t they?!!!  🙂

And then he was gone.  I wish I was a lot closer for a more clearer focus, but I’ll absolutely take these for my record!
