I have also had two Orange-crowned Warblers at my suet feeder since
mid-Dec. They are like hummingbirds, if one is on. the feeder the other
runs him/her off. One bird is a bit larger and more gray while the other is
slimmer and more olive green and yellower on the breast and under the tail.
I am guessing the larger bird is the female and she does most of the
running off. Sibley does not mention any size differences in male and
female. Also have had a Ruby-crowned Kinglet that kept its feathers fluffed
up during the real cold weather allowing a great view of the ruby crown
