Scarley Tanager at California City yesterday
- I apologize for the late post. Yesterday I had a female Scarlet Tanager at the three hole golf course at California City Central Park. It was seen in the tree margin near the 16 tee.
My first reaction was "what's that bird with the black wings" Other than all black, there were no other features in the wings. Its back was yellow-green, yellow below, with a brighter yellow vent. Its head and face was yellow with a relatively small bill.
It was seen at 7:00 AM, but could was found again when I looked for it at 1:00 PM in hopes of getting a photo.
