yellow bellied sapsucker

I live in Iowa in rural Winterset, which is in Madison county. I have enjoy watching the birds at my feeders. I saw a woodpecker, but not like our normal woodpeckers we see. I looked it up in bird book and found it was a Yellow-billed Sapsucker, a female. It has been at my peanut butter suet feeder for the past few days. I make my own suet and it seems to really like it. I know very little about this bird, but hope its stays here for the winter. I tired to take a picture, but with the screen on door and windows, just wont turn out.
