Scarlet Tanager
Piranga olivacea
Notes:

The winters of 2013 and 2014 were a little tougher than the previous several years, and spring arrived late. Maybe that caused some changes in migration patterns.

I had never seen a tanager before they showed up in the yard in the spring of 2013. The males hung out for about a week. The female stayed for an extra five days or so. They ate a lot of suet.

Another one stopped by the neighbor's yard in the spring of 2018. Hopefully they will visit more often.
