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.
