This red-bellied woodpecker stops at my suet feeder many times a day for a little snack. My biggest problem is keeping the hungry squirrel(s) from knocking the feeder off the crook!

    Wonderful shot of this enterprizing bird....They sure do love suet and you have a great suet feeder...The squirrels unfortunately love suet also... but they wait here until the suet crumbles a little from the birds pecking on it before they go after it whole hog .
