About 8 or 9 years ago, we were sitting in the house on a day just like today in May, and we had a flock of Scarlet Tanagers come into the yard. We were giddy with excitement but couldn't get a good shot of them. They were all over the place too, and had to be on migration. I don't know where they ended up, but it was beautiful to see all of them in our yard for about 24-hours, then they left and I haven't see one since. I need to start filling the feeder again. Now that we have conifers getting to good size, we should see some cardinals coming around again. Kind of tired of nothing but sparrows and blue jays. Although, we have some nasty Red-Headed Woodpeckers who are annual residents. They are so mean to other birds! But still pretty to look at. I think when we remove the last of the big old maples that they will have to move on. We have less that ten trees of the 50 or so that were in the yard when we moved here in 1999. The wind was blowing them down and weren't safe any more, should have been harvested years before we came up them. Now, so will make some guitars and furniture ( my son is aspiring to be a luthier).
