Suet Log Feeder
This simple project creates a great addition to your bird feeding station.
Suet log feeder idea
All you really need is a log into which your have drilled a few holes that can be stuffed with suet and hung up for the birds to enjoy.

Be sure to drill some holes in the top as well as the bottom. The top holes are favourites of woodpeckers who use the rest of the log as a support.

Smaller birds will enjoy the lower holes.
Bark makes a nice cover
A simple piece of bark can be easily added to the top of the log. This not only provides a bit of protection for the birds but also quite an attractive addition.

You might want to make several logs and place them in different spots.

Birds love this so much, they are even willing to share as demonstrated by this Chestnut-backed Chickadee and Red-breasted Nuthatch
