A Junco at the Deer Carcass

I went over to check out the birds at the deer carcass birdfeeder at the Maxville Alternative High School.  I was hoping to get a photo of a Dark-eyed Junco eating suet.  This time the birds cooperated.

I also documented the juncos eating thistle.

A Red-breasted Nuthatch at the upside-down suet feeder.


And this "mystery" bird.  With the black head, my first thought was:  Rose-breasted Grosbeak?
Too small.    
Here's another view:


It's a very dark male purple finch!
