Again, just a bit pricey for what you get based on guage of metal, etc. Body mounts to and stays in place only by resting and putting pressure down on the seperate feet piece. Realize it is intended to sway with the wind, ect. however I suspect a strong wind will dismount it from the feet. I would expect a more elaborate attachment.

If you've ever been blessed with the opportunity to see a Pileated Woodpecker in person, and were thrilled by their gargantuan size, then this sculpture is for you. Mine is mounted on a pillar post which holds up the overhang on my deck alongside hanging flower baskets and bird feeders, where I spend lots of time sitting outside enjoying nature and I SO enjoy watching the gentle swaying of this woodpecker as the light breezes cause it to make a "pecking" motion. The legs of the bird are separate from the body and are permanently attached by screws through the feet and the top part of the legs go inside the belly of the woodpecker and are cleverly balanced on a plate inside which allows the bird freedom of movement as the wind blows it. It is very relaxing to watch and lifelike. You can always tuck the body further onto the legs during strong storms to prevent damage from fear of it falling or "pecking" too hard if desired. My only negative about the product was lack of instructions on how to place the body onto the legs. By looking at the two pieces separately, one would NEVER expect it to go together and work as it does. There are two small indentations inside the bird on a horizontal plate that are supported by the rounded ends of the bird legs which allows the bird freedom of movement. It would have been nice to have something which tells the customer that is how you put it together when hanging. But eventually, I figured it out and love this item.

Very nice decorative bird, I did expect it to be life size and it is not. It is way bigger so beware
