[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The scarlet tanager is known to stay in the upmost part of the trees in the forest and is a bold and colorful bird.I have only seen this bird on few occasions and if I did it wasn't very long.Luckily I snapped this photo before this tanager flew away I Googled it and it said it was A scarlet tanager in it's molding stage.

Hello Cameron, Congratulations on getting a shot of a Scarlet Tanager.
A very elusive bird that you managed to get a quick shot of. Sure wish you could have coaxed him out into the open for a more detailed photo, but I realize sometimes you have to take what you get.
I have seen only a handful of these gorgeous birds in all my years outdoors, but have never gotten a shot of one yet.
