The Cardinals that come to our feeders do not like to eat upside down or cling to the side of a feeder. That leaves them befuddled about how to get to the suet.
Some of them eventually figure out how to perch on top of the suet feeder and lean over to grab a bite. They're only able to manage this when the feeder has a fresh suet cake coming right up to the top.
This Cardinal hasn't figured out the leaning over part yet, but he's got the right idea.
