Chickadee Eating From My Hand

I went to Mendon Ponds Park with the Rochester Area Nature Photographers Meetup Group. One of the guys had some spare black sunflower seeds and gave me some. I only had pumpkin seeds. The chickadees and the tufted titmice prefer the sunflower seeds.
I captured quite a few feeding from my hand, this is the best of the bunch.
amazing

How cool is that? Must have been a wonderful experience. Now you know to bring sunflower seeds with you.

Wow, that is super cool. Can't believe that they will feed right out of your hand.

@summerfield yes, I can see it. I've seen chickadees land on outstretched arms, with no food
