Incredible action, isn't it? I couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw the pouch being inverted like that.

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

I was at awe. I thought to myself, if I were you, I would shake with excitement and wouldn't be able to hold the camera still to take a good picture. lol

Ha ha. That conjures up a good image.

Would you consider reposting those series of pix to share on our daily bird pic. thread. Many DG members will be fascinated with those images, I'm sure.

Chuckles at my own image! Hush, hush.

Thanks, nuts. I never knew they did this manoeuvre let alone the reason why. Resin explained that it's to maintain the suppleness of the pouch.

Will do Kim. These shots are from several years ago, but I'll re-post them.

Yes!!! nuts and Marg. You've made my day with joy. Can't stop shaking though. lol
