Summer Tanager : Villa La Jolla Park 7AUG 2018

I observed a male SUMMER TANAGER this afternoon, 7AUG2018, at Villa La Jolla Park feeding on insects in the central northern section of the park. Given the coastal location, this is presumably an early arriving eastern subspecies fall migrant. According to SD Bird Atlas the arrival dates for these birds are in September. So it appears that this bird is at least 3 weeks early. Photos are in following ebriid report.
