This woodpecker spent about 3 minutes trying to figure a way to hang on this suet cage. Upon closer inspection I noticed she was favoring her left leg. She has also begun using the window feeder in lieu of the feeder with perches where she used to hang frequently to get seeds. I don’t know what happened to her, or when, but she seems to be adjusting okay as far as I can tell thus far.
