The birds at this one location I go to once in a while are quite tame. They get a lot of feed from visitors, and some are only too happy to sit on your hand and have a snack. My buddy took these of this young RWBB feeding out of my hand....cheers..Don

In this shot, he was sitting on my thumb.. a little tough to see, but he was quite ok with it..



..another bird I believe, but they all look similar....

Thanks Hung. Yeah, I wish it was that easy to catch the twitchy little buggers. This spot is a pretty easy place to photo birds, but I don't go there often. My regular haunt is the exact opposite - no feeding there, and they don't seem to like people too much.....cheers....Don
