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 -

The Feeder Bunch
by: Judy-Seattle

Susan, I live on the west coast and share in your enjoyment with my feeder bunch. Last month I had a Red-breasted sapsucker in my backyard. But he was more interested in drilling rows of holes in my trees. My frequent flyers include black-capped and chestnut-backed chickadees, Oregon juncos, house finches, flicker woodpeckers, nuthatches, bushtits, and stellar jays among a few others. But we don't have sparrows like back east. Their favorite fare is the peanut butter and seed cakes that I make. Happy Birding!
