Summer tanagers are expert wasp and bee eaters, catching the bug and then rubbing it against a tree to remove the stinger. The male summer tanager is the only all-red bird in North America. The mustard-colored female stands out in her own right, and the young male has both mom's and dad's coloring to make him a stunner.
