How to Attract: Woodpeckers
In our area, the two most common woodpeckers are the Downy Woodpecker (pictured right), and the Hairy Woodpecker (pictured below). Other than their difference in size (the Hairy is the larger of the two), you can also tell them apart by the relative size of their bill: the Downy's bill is smaller in length than the width of its head, whereas the lengh of the Hairy's bill is about the same as the width its head.
Though woodpeckers spend a majority of their time looking for beetle larvae, spiders, ants and other insects, you can attract these tough-beaked birds to your feeding station with the right mixture of fat and protein-rich foods. Download our brochure on Offering Suet.
The Tail Prop suet feeder lets birds eat in a natural way. The paddle simulates a tree trunk and offers birds a place to prop their tail while they feed. Our feeder comes in two sizes, available to hold either one suet cake or two, and is easy to fill and hang. Our EcoTough feeders are made out of recycled plastic bottles, and have a lifetime guarantee against any damage.
The 1 inch-diameter cage keeps out squirrels and blackbirds! Springs hold the top down so squirrels can't lift it open. Downy Woodpeckers, as well as Chickadees and Nuthatches, can easily fit through the mesh to dine on the suet inside. Holds up to three suet cakes. The suet cage feeder is made out of metal and has a lifetime guarantee against damage.
Attract woodpeckers, chickadees, nuthatches and more with our Peanut Mesh Feeder. BIrds will happily cling on the side and pluck out the nuts. Made with durable stainless steel, it's easy to fill and hang. Comes with a lifetime guarantee. (Weather Guard not included.)
If you have starlings hogging your suet, turn their world upside-down. Our EcoTough™ Starling-Resistant Suet Feeder is made from recycled milk jugs and is designed to allow birds to feed from below, a comfortable practice for woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees and other clinging birds but difficult for starlings. Not only will it help you control your starling population, but it's also easy to refill, clean and hang.
