I assume you mean the adult male Summer Tanager that was there, not a Scarlet Tanager

Last year there was an adult male Scarlet tanager hanging out in Glen Canyon Park.  He stayed for at least a couple of weeks.  He was feeding on a bee hive.  I can't find this information in eBird.  Does anyone remember the dates that he was there?
