Immature Summer Tanager. Richard Carol and I . Richard saw the bird first time yesterday then Carol and now me and Richard.
Rare but becoming more commonly seen as a spring migrant due to increased interest in bird observation by the public . This bird is an Immature male. Back is red splotched as is the chest, lores and crown. Body greenish yellow to undertail coverts were a blotch of red can be seen. . Belly yellow green to undertail coverts which are lighter yellow-green. Eating meat from opened and discarded sunflower seeds on the ground and foraging for long periods on suet near the home window. This migrant trap worked perfectly for this uncommon visitor. Now we shall see if it departs after the cold weather we have been experiencing this May. 34F in Town Hill this early morning. The cold is not unexpected for this time of year and is the reason why this migrant feeder trap worked for this southern specie looking for and finding quick energy.
