Brock & I went on a road trip through Jo Daviess County this afternoon. We stopped at the waterfall by Apple Canyon Lake, as always. I was snapping a photo of the water with my phone out the car window when Brock pointed at a bird out the other car window (he is an excellent wildlife spotter) Then he saw two, and then I was chasing THREE male scarlet tanagers as they fluttered through the forest. This one paused long enough for me to take a photo. This bird is a lifer for me!
