Its been a super busy day at the feeder. haven't finished my suet log yet, but I will hopefully have it done tomorrow.I need a few!

This pleased me. I was waiting for this one to fly in, and the Jays were trying to keep it from the feeder.

Holy cats! Nice catches there; those are almost as bad as Kingfishers to get in the air.
