  1. Handsome bird! I was invited Monday to film a television show about making homemade bird suet and it was hysterical. You wouldn’t believe what a mess I made. The homemade is much better than store bought, however, and well worth the trouble. The woodpeckers love it, as do the Carolina Wrens.

    • You are talking to a person covered in glue and glitter! It sounds great fun. I had given up on fat balls because they never seem to get eaten, but I really should try homemade. I just looked up Carolina wrens and they look similar to our plain little brown ones. Do they sing sweetly too?

    Awe, so cute. I have a Red Bellied woodpecker who visits daily. Alas, he’s too quick for me to get photos, so I’ll enjoy yours!
