First time sighting of a Scarlet Tanager in the backyard...

September continues to impress; this morning, I sighted and photographed what turned out to be a Male Scarlet Tanager (thanks to the folks at birdforum.net in helping with the ID).   Also sighted but not photographed was a Red-Bellied Woodpecker and Northern Parula.  Hopefully, I will have photos of these two soon.

Getting back to the Scarlet Tanager, it is a first sighting in the backyard and this takes the list to 73 and counting.  It was feeding on the Elderberries, so maybe I will see it again.
