male Summer Tanager in north Atascadero

This morning (Monday, Sept 1), I photographed a male Summer Tanager at a private residence, 1/4-mile from my house in northern Atascadero. The bird was feeding in a eucalyptus tree, and there was a female Western Tanager feeding in the same tree. This represents only my 2nd or 3rd record of this species in our neighborhood in more than 30 years of living here.
