I had a red bellied woodpecker at the feeder yesterday. Never saw one before but it was traveling with a downy wood pecker & came for a suet breakfast.
Made a terrible noise & flew in and took some seeds and then disappeared
I live in New Hampshire & it is late December 2012
have the rest of the winter bunch - tufted titmouse, capped chickadees, finches, snow bunting/junkos, woodpeckers & jays - jays clean everything out right away - I feed them a winter mix & suet & they love it -
