Beautifully done. Awesome colors and sharpness. Many thanks for posting. Do you happen to know which type of bird this is?

I believe that is a male Pine Warbler. Great shot!

I had been thinking it was a Yellow-throated Vireo. But now I'm convinced jbinpg is right - it's a Pine Warbler. The two look similar in my Sibley's guide. However, according to the guide the Vireos are only found in the Southeast US in summer. This shot was taken last January, and the guide says the Pine Warblers are common in my area year-round.

I make my own suet, based on a recipe I found for bluebirds. Lots of species love it though.
5 parts oatmeal
1 part shortening
1 part corn syrup
1 part peanut butter
If you chill it in the fridge for a half-hour or so after mixing, it will be easier to handle when putting it in the feeder.
