I don't have any experience directly with Western Tanager food preferences, but I remember watching a Summer Tanager in Holmes Co., Ohio, a bit north of it's usual range, which had been coming to the same Amish farmer's property for two years. He put out popped corn every day, and that bird feasted on it, as did lots of other critters. Tanager beaks would have no problem cutting big pieces of popcorn into edible size chunks. Worth a try, unless a city location attracts too many undesirables that way.

Subject: [mou] Tanager attraction question
I am open to suggestions on how to present fruit to the tanager
should it decide to revisit me. What fruit, where and in what? I
have several feeder type and locations, many trees and shrubs and the
area around my water is mostly open given the earliness of spring -
but perches are present. Any master tanager magnets out there?
