My new Tail Prop Woodpecker Feeder is a success!
The photos are through a screened window because these birds are very aware of any movement so I couldn't go to the glass door. These feeders are supposed to help them balance as they eat the suet otherwise they swing and dangle due to their large size. I found one deeply discounted at the nursery where we picked up our seed potatoes. This bird is a male - he has a red stripe on his cheek.
You can see the couple feeding here. One is on the normal suet feeder (left). The female bird is actually doing a pretty good job but soon ended up almost upside down. I believe this may be a couple so perhaps we will see babies down the road. One is definitely male, the other must be female because she is lacking the red stripe on her cheek.
This one is determining the best approach to the feeder.
She hopped on either side of the feeder looking
at different angles before leaping onto it.
They are so much fun to watch, and in this case, listen to as they call to each other and drum on tree trucks. You can see photos of them plus hear a vocalization at this link.
