Scarlet Tanager (Piranga olivacea) User: Brian  (See all photos - 896)
Canada (Ontario) Point Pelee National Park - where else can you find a Scarlet Tanager on the beach than at Point Pelee in spring. WInd was gale force across Lake Erie so the bird was hunkered down on the leeward side.

Brilliant colouring. Very nicely done.

No colour adjustment needed for this one. If anything it was brighter than this. Even overcast conditions with light drizzle coming down. You can see water drops on the feathers.

Did you mention you're still out in the field, or are you back home?
I'll actually be in Ontario this week at Long Point.

No, back at home unfortunately or I'd have tried to meet you in the field. I'll have to settle for local birds for now. Migration has slowed to a crawl here with cold weather. Improving by Wednesday and I'm hopeful for the weekend. Hot spots along the lower lakes are still seeing movement north with some good birds showing up.

Beautiful, that bird is still on my must see list. We get their western cousins here.

It's a beauty. Coincidentally there is a Western in Southern Ontario now and another was spotted last week in Eastern Ontario.
