The feeding gate on my vertical feeder is spring-loaded, to allow small birds full access, and to prevent large birds from scattering the seeds.  Back in mid-May, I was experimenting with pre-load weights to see what worked best.  Large woodpeckers have difficulty with this type of feeder unless they feed upside down, but, with the heavy pre-load, and his own weight, this Red-Bellied Woodpecker was left with a very small feeding gap.  His expression displays his frustration.

I settled on a reduced pre-load, and peace prevailed.
