Scarlet Tanager



Had to look this one up, I thought it was a Cardinal when I took the shot. Very pretty bird with brilliant red plumage.



Thanks for looking
Jeff

Beautiful bird and terrific shots Jeff. I think I've caught a glimpse of one of these fellows the last two days, but haven't been able to get a shot. I could just see him well enough to see that it wasn't a cardinal.

Squirrel

I did some more research on the Scarlet Tanager and found this:

Geographic Range
Winters in South America, arrives in U.S. through April, moving into the northern U.S. and Canada by early to mid-May.

Habitat
These tanagers prefer tall deciduous woods mixed with hemlock and pines, but they occasionally inhabit wooded parks and large shade trees in residential areas. During winter they live in the treetops of Central and South America.

So you may see one in Seattle where TALL trees are abundant.
