Female Scarlet or Summer Tanager?

Recommended Posts

I took these photos today at Patuxent Research Refuge in MD.  I think this is a female Scarlet Tanager but I always have difficulty telling the Scarlet from the Summer.  I'd appreciate ID confirmation.  Thanks.

Correct, this is a female Scarlet Tanager. Notice the greenish color overall, where Summer Tanager is most yellowish. Summer Tanagers also generally appear bulkier and more substantial overall, with thicker bills, all of which this bird does not exhibit.
