We visited a marvelous park and walking path through the forest. If one stood very still with seed in hand, the chickadee, nuthatches and even a titmouse would light on your hand, grab a seed or two and fly away. The cardinal, however, were just too timid. They stayed close in case a seed or two fell, but I could never get them to come to me. I suspect this may have been a young male, as he was still showing a lot of gray in his feathers. It is the most amazing feeling when those little claws light on your hand and you know you are holding a tiny wild creature! I could have stood there forever….well…. or until it got really cold! LOL!!
