Look at that!
Henry is hanging upside down to feed on a suet cake that is under the roof. Many of you may remember my Starling Bully problem….all starlings, no woodpecker. Shellmo gave me a great idea, she told me to buy this neat-o feeder because the starlings can’t hang upside down and won’t be interested in the suet.
She was right! Thanks Shellmo!
It did take two months for me to see a woodpecker actually use it, but then I noticed something else….
Henry brought a young male downy with him!!!
Henry’s a daddy!
Go Henry, go henry, you the man…
Here’s a bad photo, but you get the idea. Henry would take some suet, fly to the walnut tree and feed his son!
I am so proud of him!
Oh buy the way, I was looking through my window and the markings you see is cat snot.
Lots and lots of cat snot on my window.
Anyway, the first person to comment can name Henry and Stella’s son.
Great idea for a feeder from Shellmo! Am I the first? – if so how about Piko or Pik Pik.
April: Piko is a wonderfull name! Henry and Stella’s son is Piko!
Very creative, thanks April!
Yea! I’m so glad that my feeder idea worked for you! Love those downy woodpeckers!!(Or I mean Henry, stella and Piko!)
Damn, I feel kinda like a grandma since I won the name contest with stella & henry, LOL Little Piko! awwww…..so cute 🙂
Shelley: Yes thanks so much!!! It works it works 🙂
Drowsey: That’s right! You are grandma woodpecker! Stella got her name thanks to you! Isn’t Piko cute?
I never knew about starlings not being able to be up side down! Great idea for the woodpeckers. Piko huh? Next challenge is getting him on camera!
