Went to feed the birds. They eat right out of your hand.

Bynx,

Such a lovable little creature. One of the ideas behind the "Paradise", (actually a Farsi, Persian, Iranian word meaning "garden") is that Homo sapiens sapiens and other animals can live happily together. Like that idea

Its getting like that now. Since guns are scarce the animals are moving back into the city amongs us folk. Like coyotes, deer, foxes etc. Birds of all kinds live amongst us. But this place is kind of special. It started out with the chickadees feeding from your hand. This was followed by other small birds. Now the Blue Jays and Cardinals are seeing the errors of their skittish ways and are coming in to eat too. Its a really nice feeling when they land and actually pick and choose which nut they want. The chickadees prefer the peanuts shelled and slightly crushed while the Blue Jays prefer them in the shell.

That was the second time Ive been there. The first time had lots of Blue Jays doing the same thing. Flying right in and landing on your hand to select which peanut to take off with. Just amazing. I hope to see the Jays next time Im there.
