A reminder, it's good to be cautious if you encounter tanagers lurking in our local parks, this late in the season. If not stranglers, they could be hepatitic.
I haven't heard one at our place north of Corvallis since the first week of October, but I'll be locking our doors just to be safe.
Western Tanager (Piranga ludoviciana) (1) CONFIRMED - Reported Oct 15 , 2020 09:30 by Duncan Evered - Willamette Park--South Side, Benton, Oregon - Checklist: [ https://ebird.org/checklist/S74866858 | https://ebird.org/checklist/S74866858 ] - Comments: "Heard giving "pit-er-ick" call repeatedly from riparian cover of Booneville Channel. Not seen. Have not heard or seen one in the park since 9/26, though photographed one at Butterfield Wetland on 10/1, so clearly a strangler.
