  • Feedin' the little birds

    Hi all,
    During the winter months one of the first things I do after daylight is to go out and feed the birds. I generally feed the little ones by hand for several minutes because as soon as I walk away the larger birds, bluejays, cardinals and woodpeckers and especially the squirrels take over. Here are a few pics of some Black Capped Chicadee's & Tufted Titmouse that "make my day". Hope you enjoy them.

      Feeding the birds by hand is something I have wanted to try. Thank you for sharing your pics!

              That's so wonderful Dan! I wish I could get the birds to do that but they all fly away when we come outside.

                Glad you're enjoying the pics. I've been doing this for several years but it definately takes patience, "fowl" weather and no other food in sight. Each morning I put enough food out to last the day but by morning its all gone so they have to come to me if they want any food. Take your time, stand completely still with your hand full of feed, eventually they will trust you. Adding an "in flight" pics, looks almost like a ghost.

                      Oh me, oh my! That is great! Seems like moving the camera would scare them away. I think there is a poem about being still in the falling snow, but I don't remember how it goes.

                        Hey Slo, It only takes patience the first few times out, after that as soon as they see me coming they start landing in the native burning bushes that I planted for their protection.

                        Sappy, they don't like the sound of the camera at all but I can usually capture the pic before they fly away. I was out a little early today, no sunshine so the flash kept going off and scaring them. Maybe someone will come up with the poem you're thinking about.

                            Forgot to ad, the one in flight reminds me of an angel!

                              That is fantastic. I have tried this and I guess I do not wait long enough. We have plenty of the little guys around.
                              Maybe lots of sunflower seeds in your hand helps also.
