This pair of beautiful birds is nesting in my niece's garden about 30 miles away. I have never seen anything like them. She is asking my help to id. I have no idea. Any help?
The first photo is of the female; other 2 are views of the male. Certain this is a pair for they are nesting.
CLOSED: Scarlet beauties
Summer Tanager; first is an immature male (1 year old), the next two are adult males.
Resin, I don't understand. These birds can be observed (NOW) sharing nesting duties.
Ooops! Checked up, adult females and immature males can be very similar in appearance (sorry, forgot this at first!).
Thanks, after you id as tanager for me was able to find information that answered my question.
