Took these tonight. I believe it is the tanager again but have read they do not come to feeders...

Western Tanager

I don't know if they come to your area but we had many Western Tanagers and it looks just like the female ones we get. They will come to the feeder looking for other food. When you see then put out sliced oranges, fruit, peanuts and they love grape jelly! We used to make a fruit salad for them. They also love red grapes cut in half.
