Bath Time

This female Summer Tanager has been hanging around a lot, lately exhibiting behavior I’ve never seen before by a Tanager. I caught this photo of her bathing yesterday, and she often comes and eats bird seed at the feeders. I have always read they are primarily insectivores, and sometimes eat fruit and berries. Anyway, I’ve had a blast watching and photographing her.

It looks like she is having a blast, Terry. Love all the action. Nicely done.


Thanks, Linda. I was certainly having fun watching her!

She’s so cute, Terry! I love all the water spraying everywhere around her! She looks like she’s having a fun time!
