I am so stoked with this photo.....he was that BOLD! This is completely sooc (ok, I added my name and saved as jpeg).
I went for a walk at a 'Bird Sanctuary' in Calgary. It is called a bird sanctuary because the land is held natural in the middle of the city. It is situated between a rail spur, a very busy highway and a community. It is under the main pathway of flights into the Calgary International Airport....it can be a very noisy place! It runs alongside the Bow River. It is a migratory stopping place in spring and fall and has a lovely path that you can walk along. The birds are wild, it is just a safe haven for them, a 'sanctuary' where they have everything that nature can provide with the bonus, for us, that we can go there and see what is around. People obviously feed these birds as they are so bold and I even had a chickadee and a nuthatch land on my gloved hand (alas...I had no bird food). I never knew Chickadees had such lovely brown eyes....thought they were black!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you like this little fellow as much as me. :)
