Subject: Suet and Grackles

I don't mind feeding the Grackles seed and bread, but I can't afford to feed them suet blocks!  I feed suet for the many Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers and right now the young are coming and being fed by the adults so I don't want to remove the food.  However, the blocks are being comsumed by Startling and Grackles as fast as I can put them out.  Any ideas on ways to keep them off or offer the suet in a manner that they can't figure out?
