Our natural cedar woodpecker feeders are individually

bird feeders that are
specifically for woodpeckers. Our design is oriented
toward a woodpecker's innate ability to forage deeply into holes
and crevices in search for food and in their ability to hang on
to wood in nearly any position.
As you read below, you will
see just how much thought and effort has gone into making these
excellent woodpecker feeders!
Special Design. The design of this
woodpecker feeder is specific to woodpeckers (and similar
clinging birds, such as chickadees and nuthatches) and the
feeders are a deterrent to starlings.
In our 'Angle' woodpecker feeder, we have focused more on
ease-of-use and are allowing some starlings to flutter and
stab at the suet. There is still plenty of suet for
woodpeckers to eat. Our 'Angle' design has a large
capacity and is easy to fill and clean.
Appearance. Our 'Angle' woodpecker feeder is a
little more compact, but still has a log look and feel.
Woodpeckers visit our 'Angle' feeder as often as they to our
Our 'Angle' woodpecker feeder is around 12 inches long,
maybe 3 inches wide, and weighs slightly more than 2 pounds.

Hand-crafted. Each woodpecker feeder
is hand-crafted and each suet port is hand drilled.
This is why all feeders will work to the same degree of
efficiency, but no two feeders will look exactly alike.
Well constructed. Our woodpecker feeders are
hand-assembled and quality checked. We use
rust-resistant zinc-plated hanging hooks and all
holes are pre-drilled to prevent premature splitting of the
Quality cedar. Cedar was chosen as
the wood for constructing our feeder. This type of wood
is the quality choice of consumers, holds up well in the
environment, is a natural wood product, looks great in
the landscape, and woodpeckers have no problem recognizing
it as a place to find food.
Easy to clean. Our design allows for
cleaning of the feeding ports using a small bottle brush.
Cleanings won't be needed very often since the woodpeckers
do a pretty thorough job of cleaning the suet out from the
holes, but when you do need to clean, it is a simple
Multiple food ports. Our 'Angle' suet woodpecker feeder has multiple
(4) large suet holes or "food ports" so that woodpeckers can easily access plenty of suet.

Less suet wasted. In our 'Angle'
feeder, starlings can peck away at the suet, some of which
falls to the ground for other birds to eat, but they cannot
wipe the feeder out in minutes our even hours.
More woodpeckers at the feeder. Since starlings
won't spend much time at our feeder, woodpeckers can eat
more often (and they will), without fear of finding no suet
left for them or being run off by
Less starling interference. Our unique
design keeps all but the most talented starlings from having
any success at the feeder. And, those few starlings
who become interested in the feeder will give up after a
couple of stabs and move on to easier food sources.
The months of May and June in Ohio are the most active for
starlings since they all have little fledglings to feed.
In our testing area, we may have 8 adult starlings and 20
fledglings at any point in time. OF course, we have
been training and conditioning our starlings for years, so
they probably have a little more success than anyplace else
in the world.
