Greg and I are spending a long week at the log cabin and hoping to complete some projects as well spend as much time as possible in the outdoors. We went on a hike on a nature trail nearby (pictures below.) And this morning I was thrilled when we were able to get the Black-capped chickadees to eat out of our hands. They really seemed to like Greg - I think because he was wearing his black fleece. One landed on his head, then his shoulder and then started eating out of his hands. Can I tell you that nothing is more thrilling then having one of these little feathered creatures trust you enough to eat out of your hands?!
This chickadee was walking down Greg's arm like it was a tree trunk to get to the seeds.
This is Jensen's nature trail in Gaylord. It was a beautiful 1 mile hike.
