Video of Birds At Suet in Snowstorm Athena, cool!
Snowstorm Athena is here today in NH and the birds are chowing down on the suet feeder. Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers, White-breasted and Red-breasted Nuthatches and Black-capped Chickadees all take their turns. Suet is a great food for winter because it of its high fat content which provides lots of energy for calorie hungry birds trying to stay warm in colder temperatures.
I like the antics of the White-broeasted Nuthatch who hangs upside down. This agile behavior enables it to feed on the underside of tree limbs.
It's fun to just watch how birds feed.
