I read the behavior of this species of bird is to stay near the ground scratching through leaves in search of food.. .I have witnessed it doing the same thing on the bird feeder where he uses its long claws to scratch around for sunflower seeds in the wooden bowl I provide for them..Today he was perched on a wet stand patiently waiting for a squirrel to finish eating on another rainy day. I am sure the birds are also anxiously waiting for the sun to shine!:)

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!
