Scarlet Tanagers, with their sing-song Robin-like voice, are the eye candy of the woods. Their bright orange-red body and black wings and tail make for a startlingly beautiful sight! According to this website, the fact that they are larger and slower than the warblers also makes for one of the easier woodland birds to focus binoculars on. The female is a dull greenish-yellow and is often seen near her mate. The Scarlet Tanager bill in my photos shows an almost serrated edge which probably aids in a diet of fruits and insects. Although they prefer the tree tops, Scarlet Tanagers can be found by listening to their abrupt chip-burrrrr call.
