More Pictures Of The Woodpecker
Above you can see a little chunk of the suet in her mouth. She really was tearing this stuff off by the chunks. She ate so much that I couldn't understand where she was putting it all. And she was so mesmerized with the feeder that I felt a duty to help her watch out for predators while she was there.
I love cats, but I had to chase this one away to keep the birds safe. Besides, the poor cat wouldn't be very safe itself hanging around here if my dog happened to be out there with the cat hanging around. My dog hates cats with a passion. I don't know why. I've had other dogs that have had no problem with them. Without the cat out there all the animals are safe, including the cat. It really was a nice looking cat. I should have taken a picture.
The dog was watching me do everything with great interest, as always. I looked over at something else for a few seconds, and when I looked back the dog was eating the suet. I don't think she wants to be a bird. I just think this stuff must be particularly delicious. She otherwise never gets into anything she's not supposed to.
I hope you found these pictures at least mildly interesting. So far the only bird using the feeder is the Woodpecker. It doesn't help that when I finally did get some bird seed I dropped some on the porch. The Juncos love it down there, and even the Cardinals are leery of the feeder so far. I think that'll eventually change. I'll talk to you later.
