    Wow, last week when we were taking a golf cart ride through our woods we spotted a Scarlet Tanager. I was so happy to see one in the wild. Then last week two male Scarlet Tanagers showed up under my feeder. I was so glad I had my camera at hand. One hardly ever see's these guys out in the forest.

    But then to have them show up at my feeder was such a thrill.
