We use this in the fall and push it in to the bark of the tree and then we rub bird seeds and fruits into it and the birds love it we have a couple ladder back hairy wood peckers that come around all the time for it.... we enjoy sitting in the back yard and watching them. we have gotten our camera out and taken pics of the birds while feeding at our different feeders...the ones I enjoy the most are the humming birds.
