Scarlet Tanager Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: A beautiful species I've seen in several locations before in southeastern South Dakota.  However, nothing touches the numbers that you can see at Newton Hills State Park. All of the photos below are from there, including the beautiful male pictured here.
