As you can see, even Santa Claus feeds birds! I thought I'd share with you some of my backyard birds that have taken to eating a Wild Birds Unlimited product - Bark Butter.  For a full list of the birds observed eating bark butter, click here


I don't know why I was surprised to have a Hairy Woodpecker stop by!

He's come by several times.

The Steller's Jays will eat about anything - so no surprise there. 

Towhee.

Oregon Junco.

And the bird I was trying to 'trap' with the bark butter - the Yellow-rumped Warbler.  As of Wednesday, he has been by every day since the first of the year. Will it 'trap' a Townsend's Warbler?  Stay tuned!
