I have this branch set up near my bird feeders. It works really well to give birds a spot to stop at before they go to feed. Most of the birds that stop here are perching birds but occassionally, I see a clinging bird like this woodpecker. You can see how she’s kind of sitting on the branch here since the woodpeckers feet are designed for them to cling to the side of a tree. Interesing also, is that when other birds come to perch on the branch, the woodpeckers will go inverted and hang from the underside rather than fly off.
You really learn a lot watching nature. It is fascinating to see how specially adapted these animals are.
