Both the male and female scarlet tanagers (Piranga olivacea) are easy to spot when flitting around Central Park, the male with the bright red body and black wings and tail tip, and the yellow female. The juvenile male is a gorgeous mix of red, yellow and black.

The Filming the Feathers video includes male, female and juvenile male scarlet tanagers seen from October 2013 to May 10, 2018, in Central Park, with one short clip of a male seen in Van Cortlandt Park. It is set to a capriccio by Johann Sebastian Bach and excerpts from the Carmen Suite No. 1 by Georges Bizet, arranged for recorders and performed by Papalin (obtained from MusOpen.org, a royalty-free music source).

These photos were taken from 2013 to May 2018.
