Rufous winter resident

When I woke up this morning the temperature was 26 degrees and the feeding solution was totally frozen. I made up a new batch and filled up another feeder and within minutes after installation, this winter resident appeared. He appears to regard my home as his winter resort. I think this is the same bird that took up lodging with us last winter.
