Juncos and the Suet Eaters

After weeks of complaining that I had no juncos, a small group of six appeared below our seed feeders a few days ago. They've been rather regular since. Today, two different Pine Warblers came in to the suet. However, they had to share the suet with a female Downy Woodpecker. Notice the enormous difference in plumage of the two warblers.  The closer bird is a young female, while the more distant bird is an adult male.  I have a list of 27 bird species that have come to our suet feeders. The suet provides a shot of energy since fat contains the highest content of calories per gram.
