What food is in the bird feeder cage for the woodpeckers shown in photo?

It is hard to tell on this photo but my first thoughts were either peanuts in the shell or a suet cake. It looks more like a partially eaten suet cake to me. Those cages are usually sold to hold suet cakes. From a quick google search woodpeckers like both peanuts & suet.

I agree with Kaelle. Looks like a half eaten suet cake. If you google 'suet cakes' there are some good recipes online or you can buy them pre-made from home improvement stores or any store that sells bird seed.

I don't know, but the pair of pileated woodpeckers in my yard love suet cakes.
