This is a non-narrated (I am sure with great applaud) footage of a Male Scarlet Tanager who is in the middle of his Spring Molt. The multi-colored bird, I think is much prettier than the full "red" adult plumage.
The Tanager also seems content to sing and preen, preen and sing whilst the surrounding woods provides an accompaniment of sound. You can easily hear Warblers such as an Oven Bird, Chestnut-sided, Mourning, Redstart and Tennessee as well as Red-Eyed Vireos. Try to learn them all!
Filmed almost at dark, several Scarlet Tanagers were aggressively chasing and trying to establish territories. Unbelievably this bird decide to land on bare branches near my car and teach me a lesson in filming.
