Thanks usn ret, hmmmm... would that be a "captive feeding program" as opposed to a "captive breeding program."

Looks like something that is in my back yard Norm. What the woodpeckers like better at least in my area is the pure suet that is available at most meat stores.--charliezap

No one has complained yet...the interesting thing about this suet is the Chickadees and Nuthatches and Blue Jays eat it too. It's for more than just the woodpeckers.

The first pictures are of a male Downy Woodpecker. This one is of a Hairy Wood pecker. I's twice the size, although I don't know if you can see that from the photo. It seems to be a good day at the feeder.

Norm, you sure did a great job catching these guys (this guy?). For months I tried to get a good woodpecker shot, but ended - as is usually the case with my wildlife attempts - in failure. So, my hat is off to you.
