“Eats like a bird” doesn’t quite fit the red-bellied woodpecker. In fact, his eating habits seem more likely to parallel those of my uncle Lou. Classified as an “opportunistic” feeder, they will take a wide variety of foods from feeders.
Not much is off limits, including a wide range of fruits, nuts, seeds, suet, peanut butter, cookies, my Aunt Lilly’s famous pound cake…
Suggested Feeder Types: Suet, Platform, Hopper, Log, Hummingbird ,
