One of the Pacific Northwest birding blogs I enjoy following is Portland Oregon Backyard Birds. On their site they recently announced a separate blog from which they are selling their own hand-crafted suet blends called NePo Suet Company. Always interested in promoting my fellow bird bloggers and their endeavors, I ordered up four varieties of suet cakes. They arrived very quickly in excellent packaging. They are so fresh and they smell so delicious, how can birds resist them! They list all of the tantalizing ingredients on their wrapping.
I placed the Everyday blend on my platform feeder inside of a suet cage. The birds in my backyard really took to it...House Finches, Dark-eyed Juncos, White-crowned Sparrows, and Mourning Doves.
After that Everday blend was devoured I put out the Black-oil Sunflower Seed blend and now the Red-winged Blackbirds have come back to the area to enjoy the protein rich suet from NePo.
I hope to get some quality pictures to show the birds enjoying the delicious new menu items I have for them. Stay tuned!
