Wordless Wednesday (Bird Suet)

Red-breasted Nuthatch

The Red-breasted Nuthatch’s love their bird suet!

Red-breasted Nuthatch - suet

I think I need to refill the suet cage with some non melt suet!

  9. My little nuthatches love the suet too. I’ll be sad to see them leave when spring finally comes.

  10. This is by far my favorite bird to watch at feeders. Unfortunately, I haven’t enticed any to my back yard in the city. Really great shots. The first one of the little bird holding the seed is primo!

    This is our first year ever to have red-breasted nuthatches at the feeder all winter. It has been such fun to watch them. We have two. Such a sweet little bird.

  18. Great photos. We can’t encourage birds with feeders because they will get eaten by the cats..:-(

    I love looking at everyone else’s birds though!

    20 February 2008 at 5:04 pm

    I can’t get over how long that bill looks! Such a cutie

    Is there melt proof suet?

    22 February 2008 at 9:23 am

  28. Will, its for all seasons and the non melt part keeps it from getting sticky stuff all over the birds feathers! If the feathers get sticky the bird could get wet cold and or die! Only best to use during cold temps!
