Summer tanager, Chetwood in Oakland

Kate Hoffman
 

This morning I finally got a great view of the female summer tanager on Chetwood. She presented herself atop a short bush about 7-8 feet away as I was walking to work. She's orangeish on top and golden below. A looker! Lots of other insectivores around there. Also a flock of turkeys. Perhaps the huge camellia bush attracts them? The neighbors are very patient with birders.
