Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Scarlet Tanager - Olcott, NY
A first-of-season male came into my yard at 11:15 am, providing nearby views
for about 5 minutes. On incoming it briefly landed on my brush pile and flew
to the box elder tree for the rest of the time before flying off. It was a
real treat to watch and to be able to film this stunning songbird. I have
observed this species twice during past migrations, but this is the first
time I have ever seen one in my yard.

Respectfully submitted in the share to record the location, date and time of
this sighting with photos added below.
