Wildlife: Woodpecker

My hubby made this swing birdfeeder that we hung up that morning. A short while later we saw this woodpecker eating my homemade suet cupcake that I had put in the feeder. It looked like he was enjoying his breakfast for he stayed a good long time.

You should post the pattern and instructions on the bird feeder on TF and earn yourself some $. It's adorable.

A male woodpecker out in the woods where my friend lives in Tennessee. Isn't he handsome!

Very handsome, indeed! I live in the heartland, and our woodpeckers look like that, too. (03/20/2010)

I had just put out some fresh suet that I made in the morning, and these two woodpeckers kept vying for a spot on the feeder. This is not your typical suet feeder, but I like to use it because the squirrels can't get into it. I just cut smaller pieces and smash it down and they can't get enough! The second photo is a male red-bellied woodpecker.

Great pic! Love the feeder. I have had to buy the "hot" suet to keep the squirrels away now, I'll get one of this kind of feeder so I can get any kind. Thanks for sharing. (12/17/2010)

That is awesome. I have never seen a woodpecker up close before. Occasionally I will hear one, but not very often. (12/17/2010)

This is one of the woodpeckers that comes to our birdfeeder. Being a regular we named him Floyd. He loves the suet and will not touch normal bird seed. He will stare at me through the window if the feeder is out of suet until I replace it.

What a great picture! I live in an area where we see a lot of migrating birds; and woodpeckers are some of them! They are such great variety and colors; I have always loved seeing them, and am amazed at their versatility. I got a huge woodpecker "log" type food for them from my grange for only $6.99; it has to have at least 3 lbs or more of various seeds and suet for them. I had it in my tree and a few got to it, but I hung it on my fence to make it easier for them to find and to see them better!


What fun it is indeed to feed the various birds! My neighbor and I were out today for about 90 minutes just enjoying seeing the various and variety of birds as they came to eat. She comes over almost every afternoon and said I never imagined that I would ever be bird watching! It is so much fun! I laughed and told her: free to! Free entertainment! And so stress free and relaxing! (10/19/2010)

Just love the photo, God's animals all have different personalities (I think) and it seems that your Floyd knows that you are a keeper in his book and I am sure that he is in yours too! Thanks for sharing! (11/25/2010)

A woodpecker at my feeder. I put out cornbread, fruit, and sometimes wheat bread I make in the machine.

This little woodpecker lives in our tree that sits in our front yard. He can sure make a racket sometimes, but isn't he cute?
