More Feeder Birds 5/19

The feeders and yard continue to be fairly busy with bird activity. While not on the feeders a Tennessee Warbler was a nice surprise yesterday morning when I returned from birding High Ridge WMA. Its sharp 3 parted song was heard from high in the trees.
In the past few weeks several species have fed from our suet feeders, including the expected Downy, Hairy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers; Black-capped Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse, White-breasted Nuthatch. Others included American Robin, Chipping Sparrow, Indigo Bunting, Pine Warbler, Rose-breasted Grosbeak and Baltimore Oriole. A few photos below:

You get some great yardbirds on your suet! Interesting,I just visited High Ridges for the first time when I was camping at Mowhawk Trail.
