Unfortunately, no longer among the living. Found by Arielle Demerchant (or technically, by her dog), freshly dead at the base of a doorstep in Silverwood, NB, just outside of Fredericton, on January 24, 2018. It is on its way to the NB Museum now.
I thought this might be a new one for the winter list, if it counted, but I see that this species was already posted from somewhere in the province this winter!
Wondering if it could be the same bird Don Gibson had in his backyard in the golf club road area of Fredericton late fall. Too bad :(
Certainly possible Andrew. I don't recall Don's bird, but this one would be 3 or 4 km from his house.
Don's backyard Western Tanager was on December 13 (2017) and I think he posted photos somewhere.
Awww. That's too bad.. :(
