Pine Warbler at Suet

Wow, this morning a newly arrived beautiful, male Pine Warbler was eating suet at our bird feeder. It made our day. Smart bird, as there are fewer insects and other food available to him right now. Later in the morning he was singing his trilled song from, you guessed it, our pine tree. Yup, Pine Warblers nest in pine trees here in southwest NH.
Also goes to show how suet attracts many species of birds beyond the usual feeder crowd. We have seen Pine Warblers eat suet, hulled sunflower seed and hom made suet meal.
This is the first warbler to appear here so far, can't wait to see more.
