Hepatic Tanager — Image by Bill Kaufman

Fellow Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalist (SCVN), Bill Kaufman set out the other morning to photograph an Hepatic Tanager in the canyon’s riparian area. As luck would have it he was able to photograph this beauty singing in the morning sunshine.

While hiking Pima Canyon yesterday, Bill shared his photographing experience, later in the day emailing the above image.

Great image, Bill — photographing this sing bird is made difficult by its unsettled movement high is the trees. Thanks for sharing.

Thy duty, winged flame of spring, is but to love and fly and sing.

— from the poem “Nest” by James Russell Lowell
