Ya, its a suet bar. This one is homemade. We had been buying the peanutty ones from WalMart, but they were always out so we bought some lard and a bottle of peanut butter and made our own. Just warmed up the lard and peanut butter then stirred in some cracked corn, oatmeal, flour, millet and sunflower seeds. They are eating it so I guess it must be OK. House Finches, Juncos, Downey Woodpeckers, Flickers, and Magpies are the birds coming to it.

This is the Oregon variety. They typically have the black head, brown back, pinkish sides, and two white tail feathers on each side of the tail. We have about 25 of them hanging out around here.
