Red-bellied woodpeckers, both male and female, are frequent visitors to my bird feeder station. They are particularly fond of suet and raw peanuts. They are always entertaining to watch and listen to.
For instance, this little guy is a frequent visitor to my house. Whenever I put suet out, he immediately comes to visit us. He’s a gregarious friend – and quite vociferous. He’s often joined by his lady friend. She’s an equally tough little lady who takes no shit. Especially with her mate.
The starlings often try to challenge these two, but they don’t put up with it. Thankfully, the starlings have learned to give this happy couple their space.
