Downy noms nuts

I love this peanut feeder my dad made out of firewood. The woodpeckers adore it and they are so fun to watch when they attack the shells to nom the peanutty goodness inside.

I tried to take a still picture of the above Downy Woodpecker but he was too fast.

Share the birds, share the love!

    Amy, are the peanuts fastened in some way, or just wedged into the holes? This is a great idea.

    Love the video *and* the photo.

    The holes are cut at an angle, 5/8ths of an inch if dad remembers correctly. Some nuts fit loosely so birds can carry the whole thing away (see the empty one?), but some fit snug as the one in the video.
