This evening a friend and I watched from my porch a YBS going back and forth between the peanut and suet feeders. When I first saw it, I went on All About Birds and also brought out the Crossley Guide for us to more clearly see the striking difference between this bird and a Downy or Hairy. I saw a YBS here last summer, but it did not stay around long. The bird this evening liked the "upside down suet feeder."
I have been away for over a week, and am sure my return disappointed the EASTERN PHOEBE already sitting eggs in her porch light nest (side porch). I will figure out a different route to the clothesline.
