Our Pine Siskins are getting very tame, probably because the vertical bird feeder gets topped up with nyger seed at least once a day. Today there were so many at the feeder, I put some seed into my hand and held it near the feeder to see if they would take the seed out of my hand. Here's the result. Photos by Kevin.
Here I'm making the approach. The birds just continue what their doing at the feeder.
Now one is brave enough to land on my hand and check out the nyger seed.
"Yep, it's the same stuff as in the feeder. Awesome!!"
I'm able to lower my hand and the bird just stays.
