This is a picture that I shot of a Scarlet Tanager on one of his rare visits to our feeder in July. Another picture that I shot of him in an agitated state after a catbird pecked him on the head can be found at this URL page:

He did not return to our feeder after that...I was happy to get a few good shots of him before he
left...He is looking a little calmer on this image and enjoying his jelly...Now that winter is approaching it is interesting to go back to review what was taken earlier this year and post some of my favorites....

    Beautiful bird! We have Western Tanagers here. Colorful, but not as much as this one.

    This photo is fantastic and my heart went out to the bird to have such a mean bird to be picking on him. I was glad to hear that the bird returned to your feeders. They know where to find a good meal :-)

    Beautiful shot. Nature is cruel sometimes, and it is hard to watch.
