The sunflower chips and suet blocks and their fans:

I resist the Vried Thrush–just one more shot I keep thinking. The last turkey shot–males starting to do their springtime courtship strut–bad news for nearby traffic. They will stops vehicles as they parade down the street. Testosterone rules!

When one of the flickers is at the suet, there is sometimes a happy warbler below. The yellow-rump appreciates all the loose flecks the flicker’s chisel beak scatters about below the suet block. Warblery yummy!
