Just find yourself a 3” log or limb, cut it about 12” long and take a 1&1/2” forstner bit and drill some 1&1/2’ deep holes, add an eye hook hanger, and pack some suet in the holes, the rougher the bark, the better, the birds will love you, especially the woodpeckers. My grand daughter is my model.

Great idea and you have a lovely Granddaughter – looks to about the same age as my oldest 14.

OK, the birds are covered. Now, start teaching that grand-daughter woodworking. My grand-daddy did 56 years ago and I love him to this day for it.
