    You've probably gotten your question answered somewhere else, but that's a darner.  It looks a lot like a Regal Darner, which is found mostly in the coastal plain from Virginia to Texas, but I'm not sure at all.  The location would be helpful.

    Location is southwestern Alberta in the Rocky Mountains north of Waterton Lakes National Park. Observed near a pond and wetland.

    Yes, this is a female/immature Western Tanager. Note the medium size, thick, blunted bill, yellow overall, dark wings, and two wingbars. Adult males would have an orange head, a black back, yellow shoulder patch, and one white wingbar.

    Other tanager species would not have two wingbars on a dark back. Orioles and warblers would have thinner, pointier bills, and warblers are much smaller.

    Thank you!
