Tanager difference of opinion

Recommended Posts

Howdy, So I have recently moved to Florida from Colorado. In our new backyard got a couple of bad photos of what I think is a non-breeding male Scarlet Tanager. The ebird administrator thinks it is a Western Tanager. Additionally, this bird as a low black and white necklace which is probably molt or an injury. If you have any other suggestions what this anomaly is please let me know. Scarlet or Western Tanager that is the question? Thanks!

I'd lean towards nonbreeding male Scarlet here. The wings are really dark, the bill looks big, and I'm seeing no gray on the back.
