- I'm actually feeding a Lewis' woodpecker at my house, for the first time
They used to try to nest in one of Rich's owl boxes but were always
driven off by starlings... but they have never been regular yard birds.
I first saw a Lewo on my porch feeding at the suet log [ where it
appears to be a regular] at the end of November. While I was away the
suet log was quickly depleted. [ I have had to load it every day since I
Sunday I was surprised to see a large dark bird hanging upside down on
a sunflower seed screen feeder, successfully pulling sunflower seeds
from the basket. Apparently this beauty figured out how to continue to
feed after the log was depleted. Really fun to have one of my very
favorite birds hanging - literally- in the yard!
