"Will look cute and pitiful for food."

This cutie had just slid off the top of our squirrel proof feeder right into a snowbank before attempting this last ditch plea for sustenance. Nicely played, the squirrel feeder was promptly filled. Photo enhanced by picnik.

Suet Success!

I've never made suet before but came across some recipes and thought I'd try it. For a couple weeks not a single bird touched it but last weekend I saw a chickadee nibbling at it and today a female Downy woodpecker.

Making sure it's safe.

Going for it.

Being cautious.
