The Clark’s Nutcrackers were feeding on the pine seeds from the cones and if they hit the cone hard enough with their bill the cone would come loose from the tree. The birds would then move the entire cone a short distance and wedge it between two branches to hold it firm while they worked at getting the rest of the seeds out.
