Scarlet Tanager or Yellow Bellied Fly Catcher?

by Cathy

I've seen this bird around lately.


Yesterday it was a little shaken up after it flew into the window but eventually flew away.

Can you help identify this bird?

I hope one of our readers can help identify this bird.

To me, it looks more like a Fly Catcher than a Tanager, but I'm sure someone on here will know for sure.

It appears to be either a female or juvenile Scarlet Tanager. Lucky you to see it, hopefully it makes a full recovery.
