There is just one photo on this page:
adult male that has recovered from an injury
Found mostly in wooded areas, this stunning species is
thought to be somewhat distantly related to the Northern Cardinal. These birds eat insects
and berries, foraging both in treetops and on the ground. Like
many native songbirds, only the adult male is brightly colored.
The shallow nest is made up of twigs, roots, and grasses, and
is usually located well out on tree limbs. The nest is built
primarily by the female. Scarlet Tanagers winter in South America.
This adult male hit a sliding glass door in Sharon, Massachusetts,
and was brought to us unable to fly. After a short stay, he recovered
fully and was released.
