Robins at a suet feeder

If it’s good for woodpeckers, why not robins?

Jackie Gage, of Cedar Springs, was surprised to see a robin eating suet out of a feeder at her home during the most recent snowstorm on April 14. “With over 3 inches of snow on the ground, I guess they had no alternative,” she said.

Robins normally eat a lot of bugs, mealworms, fruit, and even some small prey. But a quick Internet search revealed they will also eat suet, and have been seen picking it up off the ground after a woodpecker has dropped it there.
