Liz, I love to look at birds, so appreciate your pics! However, I can’t touch birds and might freak out if one were to land on any part of my body, particularly my head. I had a bad childhood experience with a parakeet 😧.
Oh dear. What a shame. It is such a lovely feeling, as long as you don't mind holding wriggly worms in your palm.
I had an older relative who, when he was a baby, could be traumatised into not moving from the spot, by simply putting a feather in front of him. It always seemed to me to be a cruel thing to do to a baby - but his mother seemed to think it was amusing when she recounted the story! I never did find out what had started his terror of feathers!
The robin now also comes to my husband for mealworms - and one of our grand daughter's had it feeding from her hand yesterday. The other 3 haven't tried to do it yet.
