I've never seen that before either and blue tits like going upsidedown for some reason.

Wow! What an amazing capture. I've never seen a bird hang upside down like that before; and this bird looks particularly skilled at it. :D

Thank you for the great shot.

I forgot to add...how are you finding the 7D? I'll have mine in less than a week, and I haven't really talked to many fellow birders about it.

Very cool, I saw the same thing happening in a Big Leaf Maple tree (Acer macrophyllum) tree but with gold finches. That looks like a Mahonia to me, was it growing low to the grown or like a tall bush?

Then I believe it was a Mahonia aquifolium.

lol, I can identify the Mahonia's by their height if they are matured plants and one so big would have to be aquifolium. There is something about the colors of the plants as well, usually Mahonia nervosa will have a lot of red streaking in its petals, while I have never seen any red streaking in aquifolium.
