They say a man’s home is his castle and I can’t disagree. My wife has been transforming the castle grounds into a thriving massive garden over the past 3 years and as a result, we’ve attracted a bevy of new friends. One of these new friends is the Scarlet Tanager.
I’ve never seen this type of bird before and thought they were just lost in our area. After identifying this fine feathered friend, I found out that NJ is part of their range and they tend to winter in Southern parts of the country and Central America.
I guess our yard and garden is becoming more animal friendly over the years. I attribute that to my wife’s hard work and not putting down chemicals to keep my grass green and dandelion free. Fuck the Joneses. :)
