Chickadee eating black oil sunflower seeds right out of my daughter's hand.
The chickadees got braver and stayed perch longer as the day went on.
Amazing how close one could get while the chickadees ate out of my daughter's hand.
Dang it. Kept missing the shot of the Rose-breasted Nuthatches. Then I look away and look back and one is sitting.
Yep, we used the GoPro to film, too.
Rose-breasted Nuthatches were not as quick to warm up to the thought of us feeding them. They would dine and dash.
One of the chickadees that waited for it's turn in the cedar around us. There was a large group that was taking turns.
Again, those darn Rose-breasted Nuthatches were so quick.
Dine and dash. Dine and dash. 45 minutes straight.
Towards the end of our time spent in the woods the rose-breasted nuthatches became a little more calm.
The most feeding at one time was 5.
Since I do not get a lot of chances to get a rose-breasted nuthatch on camera this was a fun day.
She might not like this shot - but I'll post it anyway. I will answer it, will one I don't like of myself.
Finally, comfortable. We see a cardinal hanging around in the trees. He is getting closer and closer. But, he can't seem to take the last step.
Angry chickadee letting another bird know it was his turn only.
Macro shot. I can't believe how friendly they are.
Coming in for the landing.
We pack everything up and Mr. Cardinal follows us back to the car. Making a whole lot of noise. Almost as if he was telling us to wait, he was almost ready.
He hung around and looked into the car. Watched us put away all of the stuff. I left him a treat on the ground. Maybe we can try this again in a few days.
Oh, wait. We have another friend.
Ok, a selfie was in order. Even the chickadee agreed. We needed to all get into the picture.
One shot of me that me daughter took while I was feeding the chickadees.
