I have no explanation, but my local birds love this stuff. I have three kinds of woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees, blue jays, and never before seen at any suet feeder by me - juncos (they found a small cavity where they can land at the base of my Squirrel Buster suet feeder. My only theory is the strong smell attracts them (which I have to say is rather pleasant even to a human). Even after replacing it with another variety, the birds seemed to gravitate to where that used to be, and when I finally put another one there, they went crazy for it again.
As with all the Suet Plus products, the packaging is great, and a very welcome change from trying and failing to keep my hands clean with other packaging and being left with a pile of various plastic packaging.
Slow feeding action but having issues with squirrels around feeder
Thanks for the feedback. If this is a new feeder, it can sometimes take several weeks for the birds to find it. Slow feeding action may also be the result of predators hanging around the feeder, like domestic cats and hawks. If you believe this is happening, try removing your feeders for a few days to discourage predators and then put them back out.
Yes, squirrels do enjoy suet as a high energy food source, too! We carry several products that help protect suet cakes from the squirrels, if you do not wish to feed them, including hanging, pole-mount, and 4x4 post-mount squirrel baffles; squirrel-resistant suet feeders; and hot pepper suet cakes.
