Off with his head!

Off with his head!
I made a suet feeder for woodpeckers and nuthatches.
I drill holes in at a 45 degree angle and then hang the feeder, either at a 45 degree angle or horizontally.
This keeps most of the black birds, such as grackles and redwinged blackbirds from emptying the feeder in about 15 minutes. The woodpeckers have no problem hanging on the underside to eat but the others have to hover to get anything.

This is a chipping sparrow who was absolutely determined to get at the suet. He did get a small amount but it was worth it to watch his aerobatics.
