Woody Woodpecker!!!
I didn't know they like suet! But then they don't come around here, anyway. Just flickers.

Juan, you are absolutely correct. I live in an urban area where most of the treed/forested areas are gone, yet I get deer in my yard. There is no place for them to breed, eat, live, so they come to my backyard to eat my flowers and shrubs. I literally allow them to do so, I feel sorry for the poor disinherited critters.

So! The progress of cities on rural areas weaken the populations of many animals by destroying their habitat! Here goes that with some rabbits, partridges, wild cats and foxes, pigeons, among many other animals. Greetings

Thank you Juan. The Pileated Woodpecker was on the endangered list in my area for a long time. Recently I read that they have been taken off the list. Perhaps they are making a comeback. They are so beautiful, it would be a shame if they became extinct.
