This male Red-Headed Woodpecker liked this spot on this bird feeder. He visits about every 4 hours and prefers green grapes and strawberries over oranges, peaches, and purple grapes. He spends about 2 or 3 minutes selecting a piece of fruit from the suet basket and then stabs it and carries it off.
This bird would go all over the backyard trees, which there are many, and do a few pecks at the bark. Then randomly, he would swoop down and get a bit of fruit from the suet feeder.
