Hi Folks,
I did the same as Joseph Morlan. I downloaded Russ's original and additional photos and adjusted the exposure/highlights/shadows for each photo. They do look like Summer Tanager. Thanks to Dominik and others for taking a much more critical look at these photos on eBird than I did late last night reviewing the initial photo.    And to Rob for opening the discussion on Pen-bird this morning. Russ, cool bird! I hope it can be re-found!

I used a shadow/highlight filter on one of the photos. This is definitely
a Summer Tanager in my opinion.

Edited photo attached.
