I watched this male Scarlet Tanager, considered a vulnerable species, high in the treetops as the wind gently swayed the branches. Had it have been any other colour I doubt I would have seen it. It isn’t a common sighting in our area as they require large areas of forest to thrive. I watched it fly from tree to tree, searching for insects. Was there a nest nearby it was trying to provide for? Urban sprawl in our area is enormous and without a better forests and natural areas plan, I fear we may lose these beautiful birds and many more animals.
