nutty butter has always brought them in so I am guessing that's what it was looking for. this is wildlife science woodpecker suet.  we will see. flying squirrels left it alone for 2 nights so that's good.

If you get a deer this year save the fat for the birds.  One year I had two cakes out then shot a deer and put the fat out and they quit eating the cakes and ate only the venison fat.  They also love fat trimmings off of a brisket.

I have a hard time deciding whether to use the cheap suet cakes or the more expensive ones... I wonder what the difference is. 

Been there done that. Don't go cheap

And I had the exact opposite experience. I but venny tallow in one feeder and beef suet in another. They way better liked the beef suet.

Wow I'm surprised to hear that. I haven't bought suet cakes in about ten years now. Chickadee, nuthatch, jays and woodpeckers make it disappear here.

    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
