What is the bird at the tail, a pigeon? I named your photo "sharpigeon" until corrected.

Beautiful little bird. 

I just added a thistle feeder to my yard.  Now they can get mixed birdseed, or thistles, whichever they want

There is also a suet feeder.

Haven't seen one of these.  Mostly house finches, chicadees, and jays.
