SO summer is here and I mentioned last week that I would try for shots of the Summer Tanager! 'Till I get that killer shot these will have to do--today its MR T--the Summer Tanager a medium sized brightly colored orange/red bird with a yellow beak... some darker feathers to the wings..(the Scarlet Tanager has BLACK wings & tail and is slightly smaller) The Summer Tanager likes to take advantage of the suet feeder--here HE is with...
|A little sun in his eyes...|
a very handsome songbird-
I should remove the suet 'cause they like to eat bees! (carpenter bees & wasps are driving us nuts-second only to squirrels as pests)
Hope you get to see a summer tanager and add him/her to your life list--
Here is a photo of HER from last yr..and yes she is eating a wasp.
