Every Party’s Better With Planters

This afternoon, I (translate that to say “hubby”) filled the Dogwood cavity – aka, the peanut pantry – and waited to see who would show up.

The first to arrive, and therefore awarded the starring role in this post, was a handsome Red-bellied Woodpecker, who landed near the top of the tree trunk and carefully observed the area.

Then he proceeded to the end of the Bark Butter Branch, where he could get a birds-eye view (bad pun!) of the peanut stash and consider what competitors might also have their mind set on this tasty treat.

With no other birds opposing his approach, he landed at the cavity…

…took a peak inside…

…and made his selection.

Once the prized peanut was securely lodged at the base of his beak…

…he took off in a beautiful blur to enjoy his bounty.

I’ve heard it said that every party’s better with Planters, and I think this fellow would surely agree!
