|A male Nuttall's Woodpecker pecks at nuts and seeds.|
Look for these birds as they creep along tree trucks and branches using their stiff tails as a prop. They often hang upside down as they probe the bark for insects. Woodpeckers can be found in woodlands and in neighborhoods with mature trees. You can attract them to your yard with suet and stackable seed and nut cylinders as seen in the photo. They have also been known to visit hummingbird feeders--see my post from May 30.
