Rated 5 out of 5 by KenNOVA as good as it gets!
My only complaint is it attracts starlings in droves but every specialty blend does. The only remedy I found it to add tree nuts. The tree nuts are hard to find and expensive. The starlings don't like tree nuts and the woodpeckers love them. Adding tree nuts drops the starling visitors by 50%. In any case this woodpecker blend from DF&S attracts the most GORGEOUS red bellied woodpeckers, downy and hairy woodpeckers you have ever seen. We have a juvenile Red Bellied who now visits which we thought was a flicker. When the red bellied woodpeckers are around, they will drive the starlings off and it's fun to watch them do it. Don't let the starlings liking this blend deter you. This blend is the best there is for attracting beautiful birds.

I accidentally ran out of Drs. Foster and Smith Woodpecker blend, which I keep in three feeders specifically for my woodpeckers. I used a 'fruit and nut' grocery store blend and after a week, wondered where all the woodpeckers were? I generally have Red belly, Downy, Yellow Belly Sapsucker and the occasional Pileated on the "nutty cakes". Other birds , such as Indigo buntings, Goldfinches, Nuthatches, Red headed House finches and Tufted Titmice enjoy the Woodpecker blend from an open feeder too. Drs. Foster and Smith is the favored brand by all.

I cannot keep the feeder filled. The woodpeckers, grosbeaks, chickadees, titmouse, cardinals, nuthatches, finches, bluejays and cannot forget the squirrels LOVE this seed mixture.
