Sharing with a Nuthatch

The willingness to share does not make one charitable; it makes one free.

Wow! I'm going to try to get this to happen to me this summer. Do you think hummers and/or finches will do it? That's what we have the most of. They flit so. Great picture of a great moment!

Karen said...

That is one trained bird! I'd think I'd be flinching in anticipation of that long beak! lol

dot said...

Great shot! I wouldn't have the patience to train one. lol

What a wonderful shot.

Oh, I want a bird to sit in my hand. How long do you have to sit there with bird food? And how did you take the picture? Oh, maybe it's someone else's hand. Amazing. I once fed a little bird at the airport. He just came closer and closer until he ate from my hand. I don't know why he was at the airport.

Magnificent!

Kerri said...

This is a local park and I guess a lot of people have been handfeeding them, because it didn't take long at all for him to come to my husband's hand and eat. I have fed them to, but of course, I can't take a picture while I'm feeding them :)

It was a pretty amazing experience!

Lara said...

oh, I am speechless! so beautiful!

Willard said...

Those are an excellent series of bird photos that you posted. I also liked the photos of the reflection very much!

Craver Vii said...

How tweet! It's worth two birds in the bush--AT LEAST!! ;-)

It's strange how a living creature that size can be so unbelievably lightweight; don'tcha think?

Jenty said...

Very very pretty! I love your bird shots

happyone said...

I'd love for a bird to eat from my hand.
I'm going to try for that in my yard this summer.

Well captured Kerri.. it is a great feeling when one lands on your hand.. I have never ever heard or seen any Nuthatch do that...

photowannabe said...

Wow, awesome....How exciting to hold that creature in your hand.

gaz said...

that's so cool. i've missed seeing your 'stuff'.

granmal said...

Wow! Eating out of your hand - that is amazing. I must not be using the right kind of bird seed- I can't get any birds to visit.

What a wonderful photo and what a beautiful experience to get a bird on a hand! Great!

Mary said...

Kerri, I'm speechless. But I have noticed nuthatches aren't too shy. What a great photo! I'm green with envy :o)

Rick said...

That would be so neat to do. The birds around here would just give me strange looks and laugh if i tried that..-)

Max-e said...

Wow, what a friendly little fellow. I get such a kick out of situations like this.
