Went for a walk at Umstead Park today and saw a summer tanager! Having failed to bring my binoculars, and it being hotter than–if not Hell, at least the warm end of Limbo–that was my only bird spotting, and had it not been bright red and obviously not a cardinal, I doubt I would have been able to ID it, but fortunately, that one doesn’t require much esoteric birding knowledge to spot. This brings t’ol lifelist up to a whole 90 birds. Soon I may crack triple digits! Madness!
