Well this morning turkey hunting I seen a few of these birds. Deep red body with black wings, Not as big as a cardinal. about the size of a blue bird. Wondering if you bird people can tell me what it is. I know it not a lot of information and the picture is really crappy.

occurs occasionally in southern Ontario and as an accidental in other provinces). The bright red, yellow and black western tanagers (P. ludoviciana) breed in coniferous woods from British Columbia to Saskatchewan; the red and black scarlet tanagers....dug this up on Google

Where we live at Horseshoe Valley in a hardwood forest we get them.

We are on high ground and there is no natural water around.

I have a birdbath that I keep filled and they and other birds are frequent visitors.

First hummingbirds at the feeders yesterday and I expect to see Rose Breasted Grosbeaks at the BB any day now.
