Hi Andrew...What a amazing thing to experience...to come that close to a bird in the wild!!
I can see why that would be your best birding moment of the year!!
We have the cute little Chickadee here and I have had them almost land on me while trying to fill the bird feeder,but nothing like that!!

Wow, I'd love to have a bird feed from my hand...not sure I have developed quite that much patience. Yet. Beautiful bird and photo!

Wow, what a cool thing to happen! The picture is absolutely amazing.

The hummers in the summer swarm me while I'm filling their feeders, but thats as close as I've ever gotten.

What a cutie and isn't it a thrill to have them feeding from your hand? It is that personal contact that makes your heart skip a beat.

i saw this when you first posted it, i was really impressed and, i dont mind admitting, a little bit jealous. i`ve set myself a task to handfeed some form of wild birdlife this year, but whether i manage to get the evidence is another matter. well done mate.

what a neat experience! How fun! I've had birds land on my arm or hand before, really unexpected ones and it's just such a neat feeling (i actually cried i was so excited...). I love the picture, such a sweet bird.
