Thank you 😀
Look at you. Video and music. I’m impressed! 🙂 I love woodpeckers. We used to put up suet cakes for them when we lived in Ohio and it was so much fun to watch them.
Thank you Janet, a new bit of software I’ve been playing with!
Ours eats peanuts and peanut butter and suet
Never thought of putting peanut butter out!
My husband used a plastic lid, nailed to tree and then smears it in. It was for The squirrel and then the woodpeckers found it. He uses crunchy
Thanks for the tips 😀
A beautiful bird and one I’m pretty sure we don’t get in Australia, so lovely to see it through your lens. I’m intrigued by your ability to have a by-line in my email notification that isn’t visible when I open the post. E. G. This time it’s the name of the bird. Is that a setting?
Ah it is probably the excerpt. Do you use classic or block editor?
Usually block, but I find switching to classic makes inserting links easier
When in block you’ll find excerpts under ‘post’ options – ie where you set tags, categories etc. It’s right at the bottom 🙂
Oh what great fun it must have been to watch. 😀 😀
It was so exciting Cee, such a while since we’ve had one in the garden 🙂
Wow, fabulous! My Mum’s bird feeder seems to have been abandoned. I used to fill it for her, and the suet balls would be gone before I went home. Now they last for ages. Maybe some new predators about? A large ginger cat has been spied …
Oh dear not good about the predators, that ginger cat needs multiple bells like Septimus
That is adorable! Sweet photos and video.Working hard for his/her supper. Persistence to be admired as snacks are better than a lot of things 🙂
Thank you, and you are so right about snacks being good!
be What are the balls made of? My woodpeckers can be heard from a mile away! They must have beaks of steel!
Fat mostly so fortunately don’t make much noise! Interesting you have raised the thing about their beaks, some great research on their beaks has recently been released. I’ll see if I can find it . . .hold on

If we could only find solutions as NATURE does! Wouldn’t the world be a better place? Maybe we could, if our focus was in the right place!
Oh you are so right
Great video. Birds are amazing creatures. Here’s a story about some hummers we had in San Diego. Enjoy.
Thank you so much, oh and fabulous. I will visit shortly
This bird looks pleased 😀 with his food.
Most of the birds seem to be enjoying these fat balls 🙂
I occasionally see a green woodpecker hopping through my garden (always when the camera isn’t close by, of course) but I never had the chance to see a black and white one from close up. Wonderful.
My mum has a green one that regularly visits, they are such pretty birds
Lovely! We hear them in the woodland sometimes, but never managed to see any. I think the only time I have was at Wisley!
How remarkable to see one there! Hopefully one of these days you will spot one one in your garden
I suspect not. No proper trees close by.
Peanuts is the only answer then!
They like peanuts?
Oh, brilliant, Becky! Well, I can’t do stuff like that!
I am currently subscribed to a very clever video making tool. Plan to stop using it soon as not really worth the pennies, but having fun whilst I can 😀
Yes, have fun!
What a clever slideshow. Impressive. As are your captures. We’ve heard woodpeckers tapping away already this year.
awww thanks Margaret – oh and how wonderful to hear them tapping. Rare to hear them these days around us as everyone likes tidy and neat gardens with no trees – seriously what is this modern day obsession with removing trees from gardens? Spotted another three 15 to 25ft ones disappeared this week
It’s tree-central round here, but if it’s not the case with you, what are your local tree-fellers thinking?
It is just so sad 😦
What a lovely video! A new skill practised in lockdown? It’s great! 🙂 🙂 Happy Saturday, Becky!
Yup 😊 a festival skill I had to learn in previous lockdown, and now experimenting with
There’s always a bright side! But sometimes you have to look very hard 🙂 🙂
we’ll all going to be so full of life when we come out of this the other side – we’ll see joy in anything that’s more than 2miles from our front doors!!
I do! I do! 🙂 🙂
