birds not coming to suet feeder

13 years ago

We made a suet feeder last week. I filled the holes and then we hung it close to the other feeders. The birds come but only eat from the regular feeders. I thought they would like the suet, we had one at our other house and it was usually empty after a day or two. I can't understand why they won't eat from it. Can you have to many feeders out? We have 3 near the house and DH put 2 farther out for the bigger birds. We do have a pear tree near the 3 feeders and we see the birds sitting in it so we know they are here. Why won't they eat from the suet feeder? Marg
