We just spotted a beautiful male SUMMER TANAGER (Piranga rubra) hunting bees next to the house yesterday. Usually we get a female in the park this time of year, but almost never a male. I hope he stays for awhile ( in lieu of flying down to Central America).
Sexual Dimorphism: when males and females have a different appearance
Male Summer Tanager
Adult males are obviously red
Male in it's 1st Spring
Females are usually yellow
Okay, so there is a reddish color phase that
females sometimes exhibit, but they are never
as bright red as the males.
