Autumn is one of those times of year when unusual birds show up at the bird feeders, some of them migrating south for the winter -- but other local species seem to come out of hiding as well.

One which I had never seen before was this male Summer Tanager, who was chowing down on suet cake the other day. Thankfully, he let me take a few snaps before flying into the woods. 

I did some research and I think I have seen the female around from time to time -- but she's a rather drab mustard color and I had mistaken her for some kind of oriole.

We do love bird-watching out our kitchen windows!
