I saw this male Scarlet Tanager from the road running alongside the river in Susquehanna State Park, MD on May 19th, 2007. There was also a female in the vicinity, but I did not get a decent photo of her.

This bird was along the trail to Turkey Point in Cecil County, MD on September 5th, 2009. The wings were noticeably black in person, so this is a male in non-breeding plumage.

I saw two Scarlet Tanagers along the same trail on September 10th, 2011. The first one is a male in non-breeding plumage. Note the black wings.

I think this is a female. The wings are dark, but not black. The bill is wrong for a Palm Warbler or an oriole.
