Titmouse

Can a bird be this friendly? I came across this friendly bird on the start of a hiking trail on the Hudson River. It flew to a tree near where I was standing, quite close actually. It took me back.

Tufted Titmouse I believe.

I suspected someone was feeding the birds. A friend confirmed to me that was the case. She said they will land on someone’s hand if you have seed in it at this location.

I did not see many birds on my short kayak trip on the Hudson, but was surprised to see this bird so up close on the trail next to river. I guess the moral is explore many spots, you will experience something new.

  1. Yesterday I was standing near our feeders, talking to a woman who had stopped by. Her hair was up in a bun. A downy woodpecker left a feeder and flew so close to her that its wing hit her hair bun. She asked me, “Did a bird just fly into me?” I said, “Yup!” 😄

      1. That’s really cool. I’d love to see/do that. We rescued 2 cats, who are very interested in birds, ha ha, so I had to put away our bird feeders. A few years ago, before cats, our feeders were loaded with some beautiful birds, Tufted Titmouse, too. Such fun to watch. And, a bear??? Oh my!
