Scarlet Tanager

Scarlet Tanagers have been present recently and I photographed a female at the Waukesha Fox River Sanctuary yesterday. We also had a male this week  in the yard. On the river, this female acted like a flycatcher continually flying out on the river catching flying insects. Obviously that is what they do. A few images of the 2 events plus a couple images from Lake Park Milwaukee last year to the exact date.
