Here's a full frame shot of a Suetpecker in my neighbor's backyard. This is how Canadian woodpeckers survive the winter, the result being a new breed of woody.

EF 300/2.8 with 1.4x extender (420mm + 1.3x crop on Mark IIto 546mm)plus 20mm extension tube for a full-framed closeup. Aperture priority setat F/5.6; ISO 200; 1/320

These little guys are just so cute and adorable. I have a male and a female
that visit my suet block at home on a daily basis. There's also Suethatches,
Suetmice, and Suetdees.

seems to know what he is eating is good, for some reason the tail on this bird appears short.

Indeed the little ones can be cute, meister. Maybe we're getting a whole new grouping here of Suetbirds. :idea:

Alady, the tails are used by these birds to support themselves while pecking at things. You can get a better look from this one. It's also interesting to note the exact same location with a different bathing of light and how it alters the overall mood and nature of a shot. I took this quickly today just as the sun began to bathe the feeder. A few blown whites but the mood is created from this overcast of light.
