Pine Warbler

I have never seen a warbler feeding at a bird feeder, that is until yesterday when I captured this

picture of a Pine Warbler feeding in our cage feeder! The white wing tips and the yellow eye ring easily identify this bird as a Pine Warbler.

In the photo above the warbler is down  at the bottom of the feeder where it is easier to get a peanut!

From the discussion with other birders after posting this photo I have learned that a Pine Warbler will feed on peanuts, suet and peanut butter.  There were many peanuts in the feeder yesterday so that most possibly have been the explanation as to why this warbler was within our cage feeder.
It was an  unusual sighting to me and certainly an educational one for sure
