Comes every day for lunch. Prior to this year, I've had 4 or 5 come into the yard close enough for a photo in the past 35 years. This year I do believe they've adopted me.

Glad they finally figured it out! Nice shots. What kind of suet are you using?
I use Presidents Choice woodpecker suet cake, and President's Choice Woodpecker seed bar - available in Canada at Superstores. Not sure if available in your area
Nicely done Bob, that second shot is full of detail in the feathers.
thanks Louis
Well done Bob.
Thanks Ron
