strange behavior of my red bellied woodpecker

1/29/15 when I went to my bow window this am my regular visitor, the red bellied woodpecker was at my suet feeder, his behavior was very strange, never have I seen it before, he was hanging in the middle of the double feeder swaying in the wind with the feeder, his head and the upper body were laying back, his beak facing skyward and appeared to be in a trance, not eating almost like he was asleep, stayed that way for a min or so then flew away.
