I was surprised and excited to see this beautiful bird in my garden today and after several attempts (resident cardinals kept chasing it off) I was able to get it on video. And another bird I have been seeing that resembled a female warbler on steroids I think is the female tanager

We saw this bird when we went for a walk in the park. Had to come home to find out what it was. Thank you Davesgarden. Love this website.
