Hepatic Tanager in Saskatchewan

9 November 2012 – As many Project FeederWatch participants can attest, few things are as thrilling as identifying a new species in your yard – especially a rare bird! On November 2, a very exciting visitor showed up at feeder near Wadena, Saskatchewan: a Hepatic Tanager. This bird was far outside its usual range (southwestern United States and south to Argentina). It was the first record for Saskatchewan.
