White-breasted Nuthatch Hand Feeding - January 30, 2012
A White-breasted Nuthatch had been watching the Chickadees feed out of our hands for about 10 minutes. He would come out to the end of a tree branch and look down at Jeff's hand, trying to get up the nerve to drop down and get a seed. Jeff extended his hand further away from his body. That provided the additional comfort zone the Nuthatch needed. He quickly swooped down and moved around on Jeff's fingers for several seconds before grabbing a seed.
