Summer Tanager


(Piranga rubra)

One of North America’s few bright red birds, Summer Tanager has a bulky bill and a hint of a crest. Females are yellow-green and first-year males look half-way between.

    Wondering if I could use the female Summer Tanager photo looking left for my Birds of Vancouver Island online guide at the above picasa site?
