    I fill bird feeders for the county conservation comission and have to walk a trail about 150 yards into a refuge area. There is a bird blind where the feeders are so people can observe wild birds in their natural setting.What I do this time of the year when birds are really hitting the feeders hard is I walk thur the woods doing a certain kind of whistle and the chickadees have come to know it and follow me thru the woods. Kind of makes me feel like Dr. Dolittle,LOL.

    I love chickadees. They're certainly the bravest of the feeder birds - always the first to accept hand feeding.

    I ALMOST had a red-bellied woodpecker eat out of my hand (came within about a foot of my hand, and was looking longingly at the seeds), which made me kinda nervous....those guys are big. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
