You can find it at
I don't have a Scarlet Tanager recording to compare this with but it does sound similar to Doug Van Gausig's recording of Summer Tanager at

Does everyone agree that this confirms the bird as a female Summer Tanager?
I will have to agree now. Found the call of Scarlet and it's just a little different. Listen to the beginning and you can hear the call. That was fun though and learned a hell of a lot about Tanagers. Thanks!

I wish I would have a real tragic love affair and get so bummed out that I'd just quit my job and become a bum for a few years, because I was thinking about doing that anyway.
