This one was eating out of my hand today....he was very gentle too.
That's me in his eye. :)

How cool is it that a creature like this can trust humans! Especially to the point where they will simply stand there beside you and not rush in, snatch and run like most duck/birds do.

Yeah...he was really neat...he just stood there and waited patiently while I got my gear ready and when I was set up and ready, he came over quietly and took the seed from my hand really kindly and gently...no hissing or biting just some really soft honking noises....he even let me touch his feathers. :)
Here he is waiting....
