If you want the view of a Brit who has seen a massive total of 4 Tanagers ever, (including a frustratingly unidentified one in the UK) this is a Summer. The Yellowy - rather than dark underside to the tail and bill shape together with the lack of wing contrast are the features I base this on.

Mind you I had to look hard to convince myself this wasn't an oriole to start with!
