Getting Rid of Blackbirds

Black birds are eating our suet and so the woodpeckers are staying away. The blackbirds eat a cake of suet in a day! Is there anyway to discourage them, actually send them on their way? We have so many other birds we'd rather be feeding. Thanks.

Gonna have to point a pellet gun in their direction. They are nasty.

I stopped feeding in the summer. When the blackbirds leave for the winter (usually around Nov.) I start feeding again.

Want to borrow my dog? My half Boxer catches and kills only black birds. Don't know why. I find dead birds in the yard. I see her stalking and actually catching them in mid air.
