Heels over head

I've seen woodpeckers perch at some odd angles before, but for my birthday this Hairy Woodpecker pulled off one I'd yet to witness: completely upside down underneath Mom and Dad's mesh feeder:

A slightly closer look:

It spent quite a bit of time underneath the feeder, working its way from one side to the other:

Another close-up; in this one you can really see how its tail feathers are bent against the bottom of the feeder:

Finally, it apparently decided it was time to stop exploring and get some food:

I cropped in on this one a bit to make it easier to see the seed that's about halfway down its beak:

And there it goes down the hatch:
