Summer tanager at McLaren Park


Ben Dudek
 

On an evening walk around McNab Lake, Teresa and I found a female/immature male Summer tanager in the pines near the northwest corner of the lake where Yale St. ends at the park. We heard soft "pituk" calls first before spotting a large yellow tanager with an orange vent and splotchy yellow-orange on the head. Potentially an eastern female type? 

Snapped some bino-scope phone photos: https://ebird.org/checklist/S68900656

Good birding,
Ben and Teresa
