Summer Tanager

I had the opportunity to hear the voice of a lazy robin in the woods. It was the voice of the Summer Tanager. These birds are classified in the Cardinal family. When it appeared from the trees, it was such a bright red I thought for second it was a Cardinal, but i noticed there was no crest on top of its head and no black markings.

It stopped out on a limb where I had a clear view and a clear shot. Such a beautiful bird. This is an adult male. The female is yellow in color.

I hope everyone has a chance to see this beautiful little bird and hear its sweet song.
