More Tanagers

If having a wayward first spring Summer Tanager  was not exciting enough, how about a male and female Scarlet Tanager visiting the same feeder as the previous bird did?

This morning as I was watching the feeders and having my morning coffee, a beautiful male and female Scarlet Tanager landed and had a breakfast of orange halves, bird seed and grape jelly. I immediately grabbed my camera, went to the bedroom window and quietly lowered it and began taking photos. My only worry was the lack of light due to cloudy skies with some drizzle. The female was no where to be seen, but I got a few shots of the male.

I wonder what will stop by next?

Enjoy theses photos of the Summer and Scarlet Tanagers.

Happy birding!
