Yellow-rumped Warbler v2 (male)

Check out his crown. More yellow feathers are filling in for mating season;-)
We are loving our little male Yellow-rumped Warbler. He flits around the suet feeder on and off all day long, and not being a clinging bird, he isn't very adept at gaining access to the feeder, but he tries hard. 
This afternoon, I grabbed the camera and stood as still as possible on the front deck in order to get a few shots of the bird. Of course, it was around 5pm, and was very cloudy, so conditions were rather dark. He spend a bit of time on the ground, probably picking up bits of suet.
And, he flew from tree to tree at the edge of our yard.
I love his black mask!
Here he is playing Peek-A-Boo behind the branch... or maybe he thinks he is a Ninja;-) I hope we see a lot more of him in the future.
