Many of us birders agree that this bird IS a summer tanager. What makes it so unique is that it should NOT BE HERE!! Everyone is very excited about it and how it happened to drop by HERE has us all wondering.
Since there aren't any bugs for him/her to eat, I put out 1/2 an orange and some apple jelly. The bird has been using the orange; not sure about the jelly.
Here are few shots of the bird. They are blurry because I took them looking out of a window with a screen in it.
We are curious if it will stick around or if it will reprogram its GPS. Time will tell!!
