Default Kissing a Nuthatch

This was a first for me -- having a nuthatch take a peanut from my lips.

Its a really special spot. All the birds eat from your hand. In the case of the nuthatch, you can actually call it....Hatch, Hatch, Hatch. And he will come. I just walked up to the tree and he came right down to me.

I donna know Bynx, It's not that I don't like birds, it's just more my luck to do something like that and get attacked by a lunitic woodpecker, Humm I still think you have a knack with the birds as I have never seen anyone do that before. Don't take that wrong friend I wish I had skills like that, mine however is with dogs, cats, and well maybe just dogs and cats. Never seen one that did not come up to me in friendship, I even have a couple of fox here that will let me get really close, but I won't touch them as they should just be observed in my book being wild and all. How did you take the shots anyway remote?

After closer inspection I can't decide who's feeding whom. That last shot looks like the Nuthatch has you right where he wants you.

Fantastic! I am envious of your special place. Thanks.
