Red bellied woodpecker

A male Red-bellied Woodpecker too advantage of the suet at Lowry. The males have the red nape, crown and forehead, while females have noticeably less red on the forehead. Do you see how the bird uses his stiff-feathered tail as balance and/or leverage while he leans back or pulls chunks of suet?
