Do any of you use a Suet Feeder??? I bought one because my mom has one and she gets tons of birds on it. I have had mine out for weeks now and nothing! Anyone have any tips for attracting birds??

I haven't used one before. But we were thinking about getting one at Wal-Mart a while back. I didn't know if it would be different from having a regular bird feeder or not.

I use one, but only in the winter. Sometimes the suet will melt during the heat of the summer. Since food is so abundant now, it might take longer to attract the birds. During the winter I get: nuthatches, chickadees, downy and red-bellied woodpeckers and tufted titmouse. The birds use the fat as fuel and they probably don't need all of that energy for the summer. Plus, some of the birds that eat suet are insect feeders and now that there is an abundance of those, the birds will skip the feeders. I've noticed a big decline in the birds that eat from my sunflower feeders now.
