Scarlet Tanager (Piranga olivacea). Scarlet
Tanagers are medium-sized songbirds. They inhabit deciduous forests, pine-oak
woodlands, parks, and suburban areas with large trees. The adult male's
plumage is unique and unmistakable: a scarlet head and body with black
wings and tail. Females have olive-brown wings and tails edged with yellowish
olive green. Each fall, the male changes his striking breeding plumage
of scarlet and black for an olive green color that is similar to the plumage
of the female Scarlet Tanager (Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology).
