    Hi Pootie, It’s a suet and seed cake. You can pick them up where ever they sell bird seed. Wally World is where I get them mostly. When are you guys buying your motor home so you can go with us 😉 ?

    Got a note from Omegaone aka Chad, who thinks it’s Gilded Flicker… Colaptes chrysoides. He then passed along this little tidbit for everyone: You can find more info from here: http://www.audubonguides.com/home.html

I think it’s part of being the so called ugly American mystique we have. Plus, on the original post I misspelled Flicker by posting Flickr. Sorry, typo’s are my claim to fame.
