The Western Tanager was flitting around eating fruits from all the trees around the small Glen near Day Hall and the Campus store. We were there from ~10am to 10:30am. During that time many more birders came around and the friendly bird seemed to want to visit every group in turn right up close, to within a few feet. A flock of Cedar Waxwings came in for the fruit too , but the Tanager seemed happy to share with them.

After we took a walk around Campus & Johnson Museum we walked back through the glen at about 12:30pm and did not see the bird or any birders. We did not look too carefully everywhere, so we hope it's still around.
