We went to Cook's Landing off of Coldwater Road in Allen County because of some reports
of a Summer Tanager. We have not seen one of these bad boys yet so we decided to check it out this past Saturday. We got there and waited for a few minutes and...................nothing.
We got out of the car and looked around a bit. Not that big of a place. Got back in the car and suddenly......
He was protecting his territory from his evil twin brother in the side view mirror. Never could quite get in a good shot. It stuck around and bonked into the mirror for awhile until Kristel started feeling bad for it and we left about 15 to 20 minutes later.
Took Jacob back there on Sunday evening.
But no such luck that time.
He really wants to see one, so we'll probably head back out sometime soon.
