My trusty  Nikon D7000 was getting a bit long of tooth. The truth be told, I dropped it a couple of times and the focusing mechanism was shaky.  So I picked up a newer camera body, the D7100.  Many technical improvements.

The last time I saw a western tanager in Jacumba was May 31, 2014 at the tail end of the Spring migtration.  This morning as I was looking for the continuing indigo bunting I spied three tanagers.  My first of the Fall migration.   Just a bit early for this species.
