We collect black walnuts in the fall and crack them over time in the winter. Momma thought that the kids were scattering the empty walnut shells across the yard until we caught a pilated woodpecker in the act. He  was after the bits of goody left in the shells. He flew up in the cherry tree and dropped an empty shell on Momma's head. Apparently, he prefers nuts to the nice cake of suet that we bought.

One of the gardening catalogs that I received offered something unique: roasted caterpillars for woodpeckers and other insect-eating birds. Roasted caterpillars-yum! Can you imagine working in a roasted caterpillar factory?

Black walnuts are supposed to ease arthritis symptoms. I eat a handful every day, and it seems to help my arthritic shoulder.
