While it was a bit tricky to stay on my feet while walking the Long Pond Trail, I was rewarded with a few common feeder birds feeding on the seeds left behind by walkers before me. The Red-breasted Nuthatch above is very quick. It would flash in, get a seed, and flash out. This Blue Jay on the other hand was considerably more bold. It stayed to eat up and lick its lips while I looked on.
Follow up to Who Birds?: I had five responses to the question posed relating to personality types and birdwatching. Where there were some similarities, there was no across the broad personality dimension that applied to all. In order to get any kind of pattern, it would really be necessary to have at least 100 samples. I guess I will go on puzzling over who would find birdwatching an enjoyable pastime.
