    I saw the most bright red bird with black wings ever. it looked like a scarlet tanager. Is it possible, I live in Greenup Co. Kentucky and was really hoping it was native to the area. Very beautiful bird. I saw it on June 26, 2011.

    I also caught glimpse of this birdin Jackson, KY on June 28, 2011. This is te first time we hve have ever seen this bird and thought it may be an oriole but are glad to find out what it actually is. Also new tothe area is a hummingbird moth.

    10 mins ago the most brilliant orange bird with grey or black wings flew over where I live – my 1st thought was a tanager – was the size of mockingbird – smaller than a dove – larger than finch – smaller than a jay – about the size of an oriole – just average sized – the boldest brightest orange I have ever seen
