    I certainly enjoyed. it! Sadly, I just don't have the patience to move slow and to stand still long enough for any birds to get used to me.

    I also really enjoyed story and photographs and would love to see more.
    Even although I feed the birds here every day of the week I've never had them come to my hand like you do. They do come to the patio doors and pack at them if I'm late filling the feeders though. The blackbirds stand around waiting until I back off and the robin will sit at my feet but won't allow me to feed it from my hand. Maybe I need to find the time to sit out there until I gain more of their trust.

    Good advice Kildale. I always make sure that my birds have clean drinking water as well as somewhere to bathe. The field mice and even the squirrels enjoy having water freely available in the garden too.

    How wonderful to see how those little birds feel at ease in your presence. They are lucky to have you around, looking after them so well.
    In my garden there are just the usual bluetits, greattits, blackbirds & magpies that come to feed & bathe, but I've never managed to get them to eat from my hand. They do seem to tolerate me, though, if I move very slowly through the garden. One female blackbird in particular comes to beg for food by sitting on the window ledge outside, staring at me until I open the door & give her a handfull of raisins. :stew1:
