I fed the birds today.  The weather is chilly, wet, and raw.

Earlier this morning I saw a woodpecker on the old suet feeder.  This is the first suet activity I've seen since I hung the new upside-down feeder and then moved the old one near it.  So height is not a barrier.  (I'm short and branch spacing is a limitation.)  It occurred to me that the new feeder has a tiny hole punched in one corner of the roof.  If they don't figure out the new feeder by the time the old one empties, I can run another string through that corner and tilt the horizontal feeder to the vertical position.  Once the woodpeckers are using it, I can simply lower the angle gradually until it is horizontal.  \o/
