    Really nice shots!
     
  3. Thanks Karen..the surprise was the woodpecker which tend to be on the more skittish side.

  4. I guess, mind control, she has mind control:eek: ...........very cool, nice pics.
     
  5. I do believe she does...after all she gets me to do things with no problem at all.
     
  6. :D 
     
  7. Wonderful photos, especially the second one.
     
  8. Thanks Mike..I was happy to see the woodpecker get friendly
     
  9. Very cool Bob - I've done the same with the Chickadees, but never with a woodpecker.
     
  10. Wow, your wife has talent and has allowed you to coast in on her coat tails. Nice detail and #2 is especially good.
     
  11. Is that a Downy? Very cool.
     
  12. The woodpecker was a pleasant surprise.
    Thanks Gordon The woodpecker was a real treat. My wife was thrilled to have him so gently land in her hand and trust her enough to feed.
    I do believe so. Downy has a shorter beak than a Woody.
     
  13. It’s remarkable that the woodpecker would do that...nice capture!

  14. It certainly made our day to have him approach us so readily.
     
  15. Doesn't Mind Control require one to control????? (Oh, Dewey, you are on a nasty roll tonight, be nice for crying out loud!) ;) 
    Sorry, somebody else obviously grabbed my hands, and controlled my mind ...

    First serious thing, your Hat is way cooler than her Glove.

    Second serious thing, way cool, on all fronts.
     
  16. On a roll Bill for sure
     
  17. Bob - Those are absolutely crazy shots. Your wife is definitely a bird whisperer! We've attracted the downy woodpeckers and chickadees to our backyard feeders for years but have always found that they are very skittish. Thanks for posting those shots. My wife and I really enjoyed seeing them.
     
  18. You're quite welcome John. I'm glad that you and your wife enjoyed them. We've found that the nuthatches typically lead the way, they tend to be the most assertive and trusting, then the chickadees and occasionally the woodpeckers.

    Cool! The chickadees are fearless when there's food involved.
