I have heard of one having a bow-legged appearance, but this Brown Thrasher landed in a rather bird-legged stance.

He must have realized that this put quite a hurting on his intimidation factor, as he quickly remedied his position and adopted a more threatening stance.

Still, despite his golden glare, his reign on the branch was short lived…

…and his place was stolen by a bird of slightly longer beak.

The Red-bellied Woodpecker really is the King of the branch.
