"That particular feeder in the photo is crunchy peanut butter and seed but I have seen it on a nearby suet feeder. I'll make sure he has enough to eat for the trip south. Thanks again Stuart."

"Hopefully he/she will build up enough fat reserves to head back south. None that have tried to winter here in the past have managed to survive past December. Is that a suet cake the bird is perched on? Suet should provide the energy they need since…"

"Well, having had a long look it the Sibley's guide, the bill size and dark loral line may suggest Summer Tanager instead. I am personally uncertain (beyond my skill level), but am now leaning towards Summer T. I am most interested in what…"

"It looks like a Tanager species. Given the hint of red, with some blackening on the wings, I think it may be a young male Scarlet Tanager. Scarlet tanagers take two full years to get their adult plumage, so "young" is a relative term here.…"
