Red-bellied Mom approves of straight suet

Photo by Holly
The beef suet did not go over very well at first;) Now we have all the woodpeckers, bluejays & bluebirds are eating it! The black birds did try it and have not been back for seconds;) We actually have a suet lasting more then 1/2 day!

Thank you Holly for sharing your photo and experience! Some people feed straight suet to deter starlings and blackbirds at the suet feeder. It does take a little time for them to switch. Peanutbutter is the favorite suet but that calls all bug eating birds not just the woodpeckers.

The suets at the Wild Birds Unlimited - East Lansing, MI store are made with only the highest quality processed beef kidney fat. It is the most concentrated source of energy you can offer wild birds.
