flickers also enjoy hanging upside down while eating from sunflower seed
feeders, too... for that matter, my mind is telling me i've seen hairy and
downy woodies do that, too, but only once each (and not for long)... they
may have been investigating, while the flicker was eating quite
enthusiastically...
