There are apparently two male Scarlet Tanagers in Vancouver now? According to this tweet

Oh would you look at that! Yes indeed. The location of the second male in the screenshot in the tweet is just far enough to be clear that it's not the same bird, and now that people know there are two they're spotting them both.

Have you seen either of the Scarlet Tanagers?

Lol no, I had no good reason to take my kid to stand in the rain and stare at trees with 30 other people today. If it's still there in a couple of days I'll try to get up there on a lunch break. All my birding these days is either incidental while out with family or over lunches during work.

These can't be vagrants. They must have been assisted in getting there because this record makes absolutely no sense. I don't think any of the brown colored towhees have a single record outside of their expected range by more then a few tens of miles. Really makes me wonder how these birds got there.

Yes, this makes zero sense. Provenance should be HIGHLY scrutinized here. I would be pretty shocked if these were accepted.
