Other than some tiny birds that can get into this bird feeder, the Red-bellied Woodpecker has a long enough beak to reach the sunflower seeds. It then has to take the sunflower seed to a tree to break it open. I seems that only the Cardinals and Finches can open sunflower seeds directly in their beak.

Baby Alligator with five mosquitoes, next to the back pond at Clyde Butcher’s Swamp Cottage, Big Cypress Swamp in Florida. I didn’t realize that the baby alligators were this colorful. Momma gator was nearby keeping an eye on how close I got.
