A Little Bit of Color This Morning

I woke up to a very nice surprise this morning. It was a 1st Spring Male Tanager. This young male is just starting to get his color after his first winter.

His color is beginning change over the bright orange-red that Tanagers are known for. This visit was especially nice for me because it was a Lifer because I'd never seen a young male before.

He seemed to like the suet in the feeder as he came back later on the day to get a few more bites!

Good birding and God Bless!

Marvin, thanks! I had great sunlight which helped his color stand out.

dAwN, I had a female last year but never had a male. Glad he stopped by!

Thanks for visiting!
