Downy Woodpeckers and the larger Hairy Woodpeckers like suet, but will visit a feeder to feast on seeds. They usually announce their arrival with chirping and don’t like to share the feeder with other birds while they are eating.
The Dark-Eyed Junco is a common visitor to the feeder. These adorable birds look like round little balls of fluff.
If the cold, icy weather is keeping you from enjoying your favorite outdoor hobbies, maybe this is the perfect time to start up a new hobby. February 3 is National Feed the Birds Day.
