Nice they'll come to you. Our birds are always in the trees. Well, except for the seagulls that will take your lunch right out of your hand!

Thank you all,
Yeah, they use those big feet to walk on the lily pads and other water plants as they forage for food.
This overhead shot isn't too good but, here is one mama with her chick.
