I can't find this bird in my book and it ought to be an easy one to find. I clearly have know idea what I am doing! LOL

It's an immautre (1 year old) male tanager - the pic isn't clear enough (in particular, the bill is largely hidden) to tell if Summer Tanager or Scarlet Tanager.

Thanks...will try to get another shot with the bill. I thought it must be a Tanager....

lol! Didn't even notice it! :)

I did find this pic, but it is so blurry I doubt if it helps at all.

The new pic does help, thanks! - it shows the bill is large, which makes it Summer Tanager. Scarlet Tanager has a small bill.
