I put a block in less than 30 hours ago, it is already gone. They birds have not touched the berry suet that I normally stock for them. They love it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Randahl Very Popular with the Birds
We have tried 3 kinds of suet for wild birds. This one, with the nuts is Very popular. Therefore, it goes fast, about twice as fast as the berry kind. We have starlings, jays, crows, nut hatches, chickadees, sparrows, and an occasional gold finch, also, junkos and tohees (sp?). We mount the suet in a suet cage and hang it from a rope spanning an area about 8-9 ft from the ground. We tried it in the cage laying on a flat surface, but the bird devoured it in about 24 hours. Now, it lasts about 4 days, The nut/seed suet is Much More Popular and goes faster than the berry kind. It is fun to watch the birds as they cling to the cage, some, literally upside down, to get to it. The starlings really go after it, also the chicadees and nuthatches. It makes for fun to watch them.

Can't keep enough on hand, our backyard birds finish off a suet cake in just a couple of days. The woodpeckers and bluejays really go for the nutty suet.

I have been making my own vegetarian suet and decided to get some store-bought suet for convenience. We go through a cake in about 10 days and I ran out of the ones in my freezer. I bought this suet at my local home depot and put it up. After two days, it was totally clear that they all hated it. Even the squirrels wouldn't touch it. The birds took one bite and took off. On day two, it was left entirely alone. Even my dog, who gobbles the leftover suet off the ground at the end of the day, turned up her nose at this suet when I offered her a little chunk. I threw it out.
Here's my regular recipe (for the Pacific Northwest - nuthatches, chickadees, squirrels, Northern Flickers, Downy Woodpeckers, stellar jays, crows, dogs):
For 1 cake:
- 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup masa corn flour
- 1 cup mixed outdoor birdseed (sunflour hearts, cracked corn, oat grouts, peanuts, thistle seed)
Warm it all up to melt, then pour it into some container, like the bottom of a 1/2 gallon milk container or a plastic sandwich-shaped tupperware container lined with wax paper. Freeze, then once they are hardened, put them in a freezer bag for storage.
I quickly went back to the regular stuff and they returned after 1 full day. Now it's back to non-stop feeder action!
