Earlier in July, this beautiful bird made a rare visit to our feeder, but was only there for a short time..He was agitated, as a catbird swooped down and pecked him on the head. He has not returned to the feeder much to our dismay!

    If I ever return to this feeder I ask for more respect! Don't disturb me again!

    I agree Irmingard! I felt so sorry for this poor bird who
    was only trying to eat his jelly in peace. I am sure that's
    what he would say if he could talk:0)

    What a glorious capture, Andrea!! I have had the supreme pleasure of observing the western tanager close-up, in the days before I started taking pictures, but I have never forgotten how beautiful it was.. this red tanager is simply stunning!

    Red is the color of rage. So is its posture.
