Today was another day of thrilling Scarlet Tanager sightings in Central Park. For those of you who don't have a chance to see these beautiful birds regularly, second best is to see these pictures by Cal Vornberger. Note that the female of the species is differently colored [sexual dimorphism], and note, also, that the male loses the red color in winter.
