Scarlet Tanager

This is one of the most spectacular backyard birds of Minnesota. We do not have them in our yard in the summer but occasionally see them in migration. Scarlet Tanagers usually nest near water and we have seen them in the summer in the area near Coney Island (city park) and Big Island State Park near the shore.

Profiling nicely. 

Here is the pair of Tanagers  in our yard. The female is hard to see in the shadows.

He was behind the clutter for a long time.
