More feeder watch

This brown thrasher is most interesting. It's working on the suet/seed cake that's in a hanging wire basket. It has a difficult time with the basket--frequently ends up spinning around and around, has trouble getting in position to peck at the suet, etc., but eventually either gets a piece in it's beak or knocks some to the ground. If on the ground, it flies down to collect it's booty. In either case, it then flies off across the neighbor's yard--I'm guessing it's feeding either a mate or babies, though it seems a little early for babies.
