Summer Tanager
This bird was a bright red. And in the sun light it almost glows. He was coming in to the bird feeders we have in the back yard. We put out Watermelon out for the birds. This bird seem to love it. He has been coming back for two day now. He seems to be hanging out with a group of Sparrows that come in for breakfast in the morning. He comes in about 7am MST. And we see him off and on all day until about 8pm MST. He really likes the watermelon and some of the orange suet . He is really skittish of any movement. So I have been taking photos out my Kitchen window . I have never seen this bird before. And I have never seen one in Montana. I have ask some of the bird club people in town. And if I did not have a photo of it. They would not believe I saw this bird in Montana. This is a very Rare bird for Montana. He has only been see here 4 time in Montana. Last time was back in 1998.
