On May 9, on my way home from Lang Pioneer Village, I saw a flash of red in my peripheral vision. I pulled to a stop , looked out my side window and in about 10 seconds, within a circular space of about 20 metres , I saw 3 Rose-breasted Grosbeaks and 3 Scarlet Tanagers. I have never seen multiple tanagers at once and here were three!
