Female Western tanager continues at my back yard suet feeder now 14 days straight. She has become much more regular and a lot less skittish. A male was seen three times, but not for last 7 days.

Not sure why she hasn’t found a better spot, but fresh running water and now I put out suet chunks on the ground so she can fight for them with the jays and squirrels. I put out fruit chunks but she is not interested, although jays, robins, and varied thrushes are. Weird how one little food source can get a bird habituated and not move on, like the Blue Jay and the Rose-breasted Grosbeak
