I kept a Brown Thrasher in my yard one winter by putting suet through a meat 
grinder and putting the resulting strings of suet on the ground where he 
liked to turn leaves. The ground suet looked like white worms.

With the recent frigid weather I've been grating (on the meadium side) cakes 
of my peanut suet and sprinkling it on the ground under the suet feeders.  I 
started doing this when I saw juncos and carolina wrens up on my hanging 
suet.  Juncos, sparrows, and robins etc. gather up the droppings from the 
woodpecker efforts and the suet. Anyway it's an easy thing to do and the 
birds seem to like the addition to the seed diet.
