    At our new home on the NC coast, I have Summer Tanagers eating dried mealworms.

    Are you going to try attracting orioles, and others, with grape jelly and oranges at your new location?  If I recall correctly, you didn't have any luck at your old place, except for ants and bees, I think. Are you going to try again? 

    You also mentioned lots of Pileated Woodpeckers in your area now. If you don't already have a suet log or one of the bigger suet feeders with a good sized tail board, you may want to consider getting one(both). Something I always think about doing but I still only have the hanging suet cages with nothing but the cage for support.

    White eyed vireo? Don't think so, but I'm blanking.

    Yes. The Wrentit is the only other perching bird in the states to share the white eye. Vireos sharing blue coloured legs was the other vague clue.

  3. Clue #5  A recap and rewording of the clues so far.

    This perching bird gets it's name from a prominent physical feature. Birds that share the same last name share a colour related field mark. This bird has two white wingbars, a slightly hooked bill, and can be found in the east.

    Let's see if eliminating distracting clues helps.

  4. We're enjoying a nice sunny spring day right now, but the weather has been threatening storms for the past week or so, with some of them bringing severe downpours. This photo from Monday captures some of the weather that missed us this week.

    Clue #1

    A unique physical feature, (shared with only one other perching bird), makes up most of this bird's name.

    Clue #2

    This bird has relatives that share another unique feature that's not mentioned in the name. Hint, it's not the two white wing bars that this bird has.
