Getting ready for fall

Scarlet Tanager 028

This is one of the Male scarlet Tanager that hung around at the farm this past summer. He is going through a malting pieride where he become very similar in colored like the female before the migration. He’s losing his red for the yellowish or green drabish coloration. The images aren’t the greatest but you can see the transformation that this bird go’s through. Scarlet Tanager images #28, #29 and #31
