Vol XXIV – #3 – Treats on the Log

Report #7084 Photo: LR-1-22-24

 

Our gluttons of the suet log are back. There are four Bluejays now and at one point I had all four on the feeder at once, but didn’t get the shot in time. Nobody messes with these bullies except for the Red-Bellied and Pileated Woodpeckers. For anyone curious, I created this suet feeder from an old log I found in the forest, bored out a few holes and drilled some smaller ones for perches. Fill the holes with any suet cake and it’s hours of natural bird watching or photographing if you want a natural looking perch. I might make these available to sell once I get the process down. If anyone might be interested, drop me a line via the contact page or comments on this report. I included pics of the deadfall I found for my next projects below. Note, I never will cut down a live tree for this, I’ll only harvest from fallen trees. Also, if you know of a tree coming down that has a trunk or branches 3.5-5″ in diameter, let me know.
