This guy and his gal have been hitting the suet for a couple weeks. Must have a hole in a tree close by.

I could probably look it up.... but how does one tell the sexes of red bellied woodpeckers apart?   One hanging around here....  coming to the feeder.   Also a hairy woodpecker showed up.

Love the woodpeckers.  Been feeding them venison tallow all winter, just ran out.  Hope they like the suet cakes as much as the real fat.

That's strange Eyeguy, I put the Nutty Butter out and it hardly gets touched. When I use the whiter ones the disappear in a day or two during the summer, but only gone thru a couple this year so far.

Within the last few days the bluejays have discovered my suet cakes.   Also have a hairy woodpecker that has appeared recently.
