suet success!

IMG_4216

I had a first taker for the suet I made: a female red-bellied woodpecker. Based on others’ observations and insights, I’ve temporarily removed the peanut feeder, and that seems to have eliminated starling visits, at least for now. I’ve read that although starlings can’t hang upside down to eat like woodpeckers, they will do their best hummingbird imitations in their attempts to reach suet in this type of feeder–that’s something I’d like to see! Nuthatches, woodpeckers and chickadees can feed from below, so I’m looking forward to other visitors stopping by.

I finally received the pile of fat quarters of Charley Harper fabric I ordered from Fabricworm–I’m psyched! I am a long-time admirer of the work of Charley Harper, so I was thrilled when I heard that Birch Fabric was coming out with a line of fabric based on his designs.

These two prints are my favorites. Although I have yet to see a red-headed woodpecker in my yard, cardinals and nuthatches visit my feeders daily.

This cardinal stopped to give David a bit of style and flair!
