A Red-bellied woodpecker and a White-crowned Sparrow arrive at the platform feeder.
The Sparrow selects a peanut-suet nugget and shows it off to the Woodpecker.
The Woodpecker observes, then selects her own, delicious peanut-nugget.
The Sparrow turns to fly away, but drops his nugget as he takes flight.
“Silly Sparrow,” the Woodpecker exclaims. “Don’t you know you should swallow before you fly?” Then, she quickly gulps down her treat and only then, takes wing.
