This guy has been hanging around the feeder the last few days eating off the suet cake. I haven't seen him (or her) out here before. I've gone through my Stokes Field Guide a couple of times and can't seem to find a match. Does anyone have any idea about what bird this is?

it looks like the immature male scarlet tanager in my Stokes guide. Nice find, whatever it is.

I posted the image on a birding forum and that seemed to be the consensus as well. I wasn't even considering a Summer Tanager because they're not supposed to be this far north. Guess I have a bit of a rarity on my hands here.

I'm going to try to get better photos of him later on...especially since he's so docile; he'll let me walk within 3 or so feet of the feeder while he's there. Odd little bird.
