He hasn't been as skittish as a bunch of the other birds are - I can easily walk out from my garage and he'll watch to make sure I'm not coming toward him, but he doesn't immediately fly away like most of the other birds.
I've named him RJ (as in Robert Jr. Because he's a Downy...yes, I'm a dork, why do you ask?)

Just a day after taking the photo of RJ, I noticed the female downy on the feeder (I've decided to name her Emily...I don't know why - it just came to me...much like naming my pets).
But I have been having a problem with European Starlings being all gung ho over the suet. Like "15 birds at a time" gung ho. Yeah...I'll have to figure out what to do about that....any suggestions?
