Scarlet Tanager male

Scarlet Tanager female

Wow what a spring for birds. We have had an amazing number of Baltimore Orioles around for the past week. Yesterday a Scarlet Tanager showed up. I’ve only see three or four of these in my entire life and have never been able to get a photograph of one. It was amazing he came to my feeder several times during the day. I had just put a different kind of suet it the feeder and he went right for it even though there was some regular suet available. This was a packaged suet and seed mixture which included black sunflowers and corn. He seems to really like it. The amazing thing is I only put it out because I was down to my last package of suet and didn’t have any more peanut butter suet remaining. The next day the female showed up at the feeder.
