Scarlet Tanager
Piranga olivacea

Native Range: North America

Notes: a striking tanager of open deciduous woods where it usually stays high in the canopy; strong sexual dimorphism, with male being bright scarlet red on the body parts where the female is olive-yellow; female taanagers can be told from similar-colored and similar-sized orioles by their heavier and less pointed 'tanager' bills.
