This is a male summer tanager. He is supposed to be ALL red. But you can see he has some white feathers and even a few black. He is one of a kind like all of us!
People will look at birds and think that all great blue herons look alike or all cardinals look alike. They don’t. Their eye may have a little mark under it or their eye brow may be slightly redder. We have 3 male cardinals and each has a different color of red. Their names are Mr Red. Little Red. And ofcourse the darkest one we named Red Velvet.
We are all unique!
