Hi, your beautiful bird is a Western Tananger. In breeding phase the male will have a bright reddish orange head and beard.

They do like fruit but usually eat it in the fall. She may think it's fruit and you could put some fruit preserves out but be certain it doesn't have high fructose corn syrup or preservatives. Fresh fruit would thrill them, I'm sure but be careful not to let it mold or spoil.

You can find more info about nesting, food habitat etc:
