I've had sapsuckers come to suet in a suet holder attached to a snag. I've been worried, too, about sapsuckers in this freezing weather because sap is not available.

Good afternoon, We are able to provide food for all the birds frequenting our yard except for a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. We have a Suet “Sandwich” that other species of woodpeckers can manage, but not the Sapsucker. Any suggestions on what we can do to help it? It does spend time poking around in the bark on our Silver Maple. But, it seems o.k., but with the drastic wind chill here in Herndon, we’re not sure it will make it. It cannot manage the suet in a cup that is in a cage frequented by the Bluebirds. Thanks for any suggestions, Jay and Carol Hadlock Herndon, VA *** You are subscribed to va-bird as <marlenecondon...> If you wish to unsubscribe, or modify your preferences please visit https://mailman.listserve.com/listmanager/listinfo/va-bird *** *** You are subscribed to va-bird as <lists...> If you wish to unsubscribe, or modify your preferences please visit https://mailman.listserve.com/listmanager/listinfo/va-bird ***
