Which red tanager (Denver)?

Recommended Posts

If I heard that here, where they are common, I would have no question it is a Summer rather than a Scarlet. I have no experience with tanagers of the western US, but listening to the calls of Western and Hepatic neither sound close.

Thanks all! This was indeed consensus among others I consulted, including Merlin (who I tricked into making an ID by changing the location of the encounter). It was also pointed out to me that a Scarlet Tanager right now wouldn't be as brilliantly red as a Summer...and perhaps not red at all.
