Pine Warbler Eating Suet!

Wow, this morning saw a newly arrived, beautiful, male Pine Warbler. In past years we have had them eating suet at our bird feeder. Smart bird, as there are fewer insects and other food available at this time of year. 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 home made suet meal.
This is the first warbler to appear here so far, can't wait to see more.
