A Bird on the Hand/Top Shot

Feeding a chickadee

This little girl was delighted to feed the chickadees and was especially tickled when this one landed on her hand.

I am linking to Madge's Weekly Top Shot.

I'm always amazed at this! It seems like they're more likely to eat from children's hands.

That is either a very brave or very hungry (or both?) little chickadee. Nice shot, EG!

I love it when the birds east from your hands. Doesn't happen very often around here, no matter how often I talk to them!!

I remember having chickadees feed out of my hand when I was a little girl. It was really special.

It is so much fun to feed birds! Its awesome for kids when birds will land on their hand to feed. We have a park here where the birds seem almost tame and will land on your hand for food.

How? I've seen others do this & I'm baffled, esp when a lil girl can do it... how'd she manage to be still long enough? WoW! WoW! I'm speechless, that's so awesome! =)
