My first Summer Tanager

tanager

Not a great photo but the best of what I managed after I realized “Whoah. That’s not a cardinal” and before he flew away. These little dandies summer up here and winter in Central and South America.  Interesting: Summer Tanagers are the only entirely red bird in North America. Taken at  Freeman Ranch.
