[Mnbird] Flicker

A Flicker visited my log suet feeder this morning for some time, but has 
not come back.  By the way, I discovered something that makes filling my 
suet feeders easier.  I assume many others were on the path to 
brilliance ahead of me, but I'll share the enlightenment anyway: if you 
are using the suet plugs for a log type feeder, open one end of the 
package and microwave the suet for 15 seconds before pushing it onto the 
holes.  It is just soft enough to be the consistency of clay at that 
point, and you are able to really bond the suet with the feeder before 
it chills down again.  It makes it much more resistant to being forced 
from the holes in the feeder by a hammering woodpecker.
