What do you think he is doing? Clearly he is quite interested in that sunflower seed.

Nice shot ! Growing up, before we were allowed to dive into dinner we too were taught to bow our heads and give thanks !

Great capture Don. I'd say it is about to start hammering away to open it.

That is how they eat their Sunflowers Don, in between both feet, hammer away and the precious tidbit comes out, usually in little bits. Have seen that exact pose many times.
Very nice shot Don, in between all those branches and cedar leaves, they sure do make it tough on us!

Thanks Bret. Interesting explanation. Their habit here is to fly to the feeder, grab one seed and then fly into the cedars to eat it and then repeat. I rarely get to see them eating like this one as they typically go deeper into the branches.
