Pine Warbler Liking Peanuts

Up until very recently, the peanut piece feeder has been a mainly wren-nuthatch-and-woodpecker show, with the three nuthatch species taking the lion's share of the loot.  But a new player has appeared, and it's a jewel.  Our friend the Pine Warbler has found these peanuts and evidently likes the selection.  What a plus for me, as PW has not exactly been a frequent guest.  Perhaps an alternative to straight suet may incentivize more traffic.  Not to mention give us a nice flash of yellow color on a drab winter day.  There may be much to enjoy here on both sides!
