The only bird that can walk down a tree is a Nuthatch. This "upside down bird" has one big toe that faces backwards, while its other three toes face forward. It's able to walk headfirst down tree trunks by moving only one foot at a time while the big toe on the other foot holds it in place.

Made out of sustainably harvested balsa wood, these lightweight ornaments are hand-carved and then painted with non-toxic acrylic paint by a cooperative of skilled artisans on Isla Solentiname, Nicaragua. Approximate size: 5" x 2".
