Summer Tanager - Oakland - Update

Travis Hails

The Summer Tanager remains in the area of the Oakland (Morcom) Rose Garden & 661-667 Chetwood St, Oakland.

I have seen it at 8:00AM 1/2/20, 8:30AM 1/3/20, and 11:00 & 1:15 today, 1/4/20. Western Bluebirds are always present when the tanager is present.

I am back to believing that this is an adult female, which Sibley illustrates as 'Eastern Population' and Nat'l Geo calls a 'Red Morph'. This bird seems to be more orange than either guide illustrates, however.
