In Response to Re: Feeding birds:
This morning I saw the piliated woodpecker on the suet again. When he finished eating, he flew to a tree, walked up the trunk a ways and swiped his beak side to side on the tree trunk. I guess he was wiping off the suet that was on the sides of his beak. Cute to watch. I also saw nuthatches walking head first down the tree trunk. We also have chickadees and tufted titmice.

The woodpeckers wipe the suet off so as to store it for the future. Just in case you fail to fill the feeder one day.
I think this is called a cache. ( I will double check and if I am wrong I will correct this.)
