I have titmice, chickadees, nuthatches and three types of woodpeckers at my suet feeder. I have one that hangs upside down so I do not get jays, grackles, starlings or crows at the suet feeders. I use only pure suet, if you have seeds mixed in your suet you will occasionally get tree sparrows, song sparrows (one is sing outside my window right now) etc. They are very rare at the suet feeder, but they do show up if I run out of seed.
It is a perversion of Democracy to muffle the voice of the most knowledgeable among us and consequently amplify the voice of those with the greatest ignorance.

> Yesterday afternoon, my black oil feeders were empty. That is where the resident Titmice usually feed. I was surprised to see one feeding on the suet. I've never seen that before. Has anyone else seen Titmice feeding on suet?
