Whereupon I Catch a Scarlet Tanager Instead

 So I went to one of the spots where I could see a Kirtland warbler and I did end up seeing one but I didn't have my camera ready.  By the time I got my camera ready, he flew off.  So I went to some other spots to see if I could find one.

When I came back to the spot where I saw the Kirtland warbler, I didn't see another one but I did see this guy.
This is a scarlet tanager and it turns out that they are fairly rare but I have seen one before.  I saw one at Ottawa Wildlife Preserve a couple weeks ago.
My mom says that many birders will go a lifetime before they see one.  So I guess I'm lucky.
