Western Tanager?


Recommended Posts

Yes, this is a female/immature Western Tanager. Note the medium size, thick, blunted bill, yellow overall, dark wings, and two wingbars. Adult males would have an orange head, a black back, yellow shoulder patch, and one white wingbar.

Other tanager species would not have two wingbars on a dark back. Orioles and warblers would have thinner, pointier bills, and warblers are much smaller.
