Scarlet Tanager

How wonderful that a male scarlet tanager decided to visit the lower garden this morning!

Usually a brilliant flash of red means a male cardinal is visiting.  But this morning the flash was brighter and smaller.   Tanagers are often hard to spot because they live in tall canopies.  But today the rose of sharon and the water fountain lured this male into the garden.  He can stop by anytime.
