I've lived in this loghome for 3 years, in the forest. I feed the birds in winter. Mostly suet because they waste less. The woodpeckers (several different kinds) peck on the house and it drives me nuts! Just knowing that they're pecking holes in my logs. It's not as bad when I keep two or three feeders full to keep them occupied, but heaven forbid I run out of suet. Does anyone have any suggestions how to keep them from pecking the house? I don't want to scare them away. I don't want to stop feeding the birds. Winters are long and hard here and I enjoy watching them as much as they enjoy the food.
