Starlings

 ... are industrious fuckers.  There is currently a starling on the new suet feeder, which has a roof and is hanging at about a 45 degree angle.  The starling is clinging to the cage, upside-down, pecking at the suet.  The whole point to this style of suet cage is to discourage nonclinging birds from eating the suet.  Let me tell you, nonclinging birds are surprisingly determined when it comes to getting food out of feeders not designed for them.

LOL it's so funny to watch, I don't even mind.  When this cake is gone, I will insert another and lower the chain a bit.  It'll be fun to see if they can keep going all the way to level.  <3 backyard science.
