Nice capture.

I've been trying to find these for years... I've only ever seen one. I know they are out there (I've heard them) and I know others that have seen them. I'm just unlucky with them, I guess.

I certainly wish I had them in my back yard.

Eric, thanks! They always spook when they see any movement... unless of course I'm out without a camera in my hands. This picture was taken through my kitchen window, good thing it was clean. :-)

I have a number of shots of them consisting of a small piece of the tail, a wing here, and a feather there. Perhaps if I put them all together in PS, I might have one whole bird.

Great captures! I don't have a shot of one of these yet, either. Not even pieces, Dave :-)

Great shot and through a window at that. He looks like he means business.

Thanks! Can you see the notches he took out of my Oak tree? :?

Great captures! I would LOVE to see one of these guys... and I'd especially LOVE to get a good shot of one. We are suppose to have them year-round... but I've never seen one in my entire life that I recall. I've had the Red-bellied and the Downy visit the feeder and I have seen a Red-headed Woody down the road in a tree, but that's about it.



Just curious... where did you purchase that suet feeder if I may ask? I've been wanting one like it. Attempted to make one, but I don't have the proper tools to make the holes very good. I want it to look rustic and natural... not pretty and man-made. Yours looks pretty good.

I got it at Wild Birds Unlimited in Burnsville, MN. They have a website and sell suet that fits right into those round holes. Heres the site: http://www.wildbirdsunlimited.com/
