THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE "GOOD-BYE DADDY-HURRY BACK" The brilliant male Scarlet Tanager has just fed his youngsters, and now, while they look after him hopefully, he starts his search for the second course of a meal that lasts all day. Well camouflaged, the young resemble their olive mother rather than their dazzling dad. A BLUE JAY ADOPTS THE GOLD STANDARD The bold individual in the shining blue coat readily came to the feeding station even though it had been surrounded with goldenrod. The aluminum leg band, acquired on a previous visit, may eventually show how far the Blue Jay wanders and how long he lives.
