Then wait for it to be safe again and retrieve their nut.
“It is the peculiar nature of the world to go on spinning no matter what sort of heartbreak is happening.” ― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees:
One day while walking with the dogs a seedpod of some kind dropped onto the stone walkingpath out of a clear,blue and windless sky not too far from me. After first being quite puzzled as to where this came from i soon was delighted to discover it came from a jackdaw,who was cleverly using gravity to help open them up. I've seen it doing this one more time since,i've recently aqcuired a nice camcorder...it would be very nice to catch it in the act some time.
