Such tiny trusting little birds.

Cool shot casil. Guess you didn't need large glass for that?
We don't get any that friendly around here. Could be the Coopers Hawk that picks them off all the time that keeps them wary. She is also quite shy, and have yet to get a pic of her.

Thanks.....I was trying for the little red nuthatch that comes down to my hand as well but she's too shy still and still a little wary....takes he a bit to trust but she does. I usually bring my hand to her and she hops on it but if I make any move other than that she's gone. :)

Funny, yesterday the little guy that I got the better shot on looking at the camera was really kind of interested in the noises it was making. He sat there checking it out for the longest time really curious and so fearless. :)
I saw a really neat bird yesterday too...found out it was a brown creeper but it was really hard to photograph and the 2 I got sucked. Never seen one before. Looked like a cross between a downy woodpecker and a white nuthatch.

Well there's your proof :D These guys seem much too timid for that action at least in the circles I plod around in. Way to go, you're a Chickadee trainer:laughing:
