Farm and Fleet is men's heaven. Or something on the way to it.
So I was puttering (what else is there for a guy to do at Farm and Fleet around holiday time, or any time) a week or so ago and realized I had not put out any suet yet for the woodpeckers.
Most years, I will get the usual woodpeckers in my yard, hairy, downy and red-bellied woodpeckers and northern flickers. In really good years, I will see or hear a red-headed woodpecker or two.
For whatever reason, maybe because I put the suet out so late, the woodpeckers did not come in the first few days or I didn't see them. Then today, there was a hairy working around the suet and our maple.
It's just fun to watch how they navigate a tree.
And I didn't have a chance for a photo. But that will come. He found the suet, and it looks like winter is settling in for the long haul.
