We have a couple varieties of woodpeckers in the neighborhood that I enjoy seeing every day. The problem is that the vertical suet feeders also attract lots of starlings in my area. This is annoying because starlings likes to scare off the woodpeckers.
I found an organic way to avoid feeding the starlings. . .
I did a search on the internet and found this horizontal or upside down suet feeder made out of cedar by Nature’s Way. While the woodpeckers are able to eat upside down, it is very difficult for the starlings. I did find that a few other birds such as blue jays and some small birds are successful eating upside down too. I thought since blue jays are so big they wouldn’t able to eat this way – but I was wrong!
In order to put the suet cakes in the feeder, you lift roof and insert them. You can stack two suet cakes in the feeder. So simple!
