That's a female Scarlet Tanager! Notice the wings which are a bit darker than the body ruling out Summer Tanager, and the stout bill ruling out female Painted Bunting.

Looks better for a Summer Tanager imo. Bill is very hefty, and the wings don’t look too much darker than the body. Also, eBird bar chart data shows Scarlet aren’t at Sabal Palm Sanctuary until the beginning of April, whereas Summer apparently overwinter.
