The claw

When birds stand on one foot, it is a relaxed, happy posture, usually.  Max frequently perches so that her entire foot is hidden by her feathers.

And then sometimes she holds her toes out as if she is threatening us with a claw:
I know there is no malice intended in this pose, but it makes us laugh every time, and then Thomas and I pretend to claw each other.

Yes you often wonder what they are thinking when they do that .
