|Tufted Titmouse on suet|
Some folks still think suet is for wintertime only. They believe the old myth that in the summer it might melt or be unappealing. That’s true of basic suet (animal fat) from a butcher shop, popular in the early 1900s. But packaged suet today is formulated to have a melting point of around 110-degrees. So it’s perfect for Jays, Woodpeckers, Titmice, Chickadees and lots of other north Texas birds, now and all summer long. (They’re hungry all year!)
If the temperature stays over 110, you're likely to have bigger problems than what to feed the birds.
