None of the other birds that visit my feeders hang around as long as the flickers. This homemade mix attracts pileated woodpeckers (who though very shy, have become used to my standing at the window and taking pictures of them from about 12 feets away), bluebirds, nuthatches, tufted titmice (titmouses?), Carolina wrens, chickadees, downy, hairy and red-bellied woodpeckers, and yellow bellied sapsuckers.
