WE Live in upstate western New York just off Lake Ontario and most of the area around our home is open corn fields or apple orchards there fore we have a variety of birds Esp crackles and blackbirds so most of our feeders are Caged cylinder feeders and caged dinner bell feeders with barrels type feeds,We have a platform feeder used mostly for safflower which attracts Cardinals and bluejays mostly other birds don't care for safflower, on each end we have suet cages and just recently we got few packs off peanut butter n rasin We have at least a half dozen Downy woodpeckers that feed daily at our caged dinner bell feeders with woodpecker logs in them but the other morning at the platform feeder eating the peanut butter raisin suet was a red bellied woodpecker first we have seen in our area will continue to replace the suet n study what else they enjoy n see how long it stays around .......Art Beyound that another first this year in mid Feb.we spotted several Blue Birds at our Heated bird bath so we got two Blue Bird houses and mounted em added some Mealworms and Blue Bird Nuggets to one of the Dinner Bell feeders and will see what happens there other than that we have Morning Doves,Grossbeaks,Goldfinches,Robins,Humming Birds...........
