Hi again Carolyn -
That suet looks great! Is that your own recipe?

I believe that the Western Tanager is the same bird that spent the winter
with us last year. That bird came in with the bad ice storm on January 6.
He stayed until April and left at the same time as my Yellow-rumped
Warblers. I was hoping that when he migrated he'd get his bearings to find
his way home, but that doesn't seem to have happened.
He came in this morning and went straight to the suet pie and seemed very
comfortable and at home. Let me observe his behavior for a few days to
figure out what his a routine is going to be. Once I have a pattern for
when he might be at the feeder, we can see about arranging times when
people can come.
