I decided to move this to scraps. There is something about it that bothers me - could be quality since I had to crop so much. I know I can get a better shot and am very determined to do so!
One of the newest regulars to my backyard who still has not figured out the suet feeder - I think the branches are too small for them since they like trunks. This is the female (she has a gray crown); the first one to come visit was male, so I do have a pair! I have not seen them together yet, but i do see them in my woods often now.
Shot though my sliding doors. This is a crop - the feeder is just above the upper boundary, which is why I have little surroundings.
