Thank you Spud. Yes, the Summer Tanager is so beautiful - very bright red.

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 15, 2013 at 3:12pm

The Summer Tanager is gorgeous.  It would be even more outstanding if it was solid red.

Dominic is right about the bread. However, I see people at the parks feeding birds all sorts of things like chips and bread.

Melinda I love the bird and computer pic. Mindy is a cute name for you.

Yes, Spud - tell others not to feed birds junk food.
