Thank you Spud. Yes, the Summer Tanager is so beautiful - very bright red.

The Summer Tanager is gorgeous.  It would be even more outstanding if it was solid red.

Oh what a funny story Melinda. I just put a few Tanager pics up. I have many more. : )

How is everyone doing?

Wow Steph, Tanagers come in GORGEOUS colors!!!  Lol about the name Mindy.  The only time I went by Melinda was when that stupid sitcom came on t.v. in the 70's~ "Mork and Mindy."  Robin Williams played Mork and that's when he became famous.  I got teased for YEARS!  "Hey Mindy, How's Mork?!" ha ha.  Everyone thought they were so original! :)
