Taken on 9-11-2021 in the morning at Ballona Freshwater Marsh in Playa del Rey, CA (Los Angeles).

This bird has been giving me fits -- which probably means its a female Western Tanager.  I always have trouble identifying them when they are alone.  Especially this bird.

The photos were lightened significantly.  The sun was behind the bird to the right side of the photo.

If I hadn't have gotten that last shot, I wouldn't have considered Western Tanager.  Fortunately it jump down to a branch about a foot below and turned sideways.  I was almost looking toward the sun when I took these, so I couldn't really tell what it looked like -- by the naked eye or through the lens.  Thanks.
