As the title implies...Pictures of me with birds in my hand. Enjoy.
I caught this fellow on the patio and with much patience and persistence I cupped him. They are so very light in weight. I was amazed. I do what I always do - take a gazillion pictures! I even feed it some sugar water and could see its very small tongue flit out very quickly. I definitely feel like I came in contact with an angel with this experience, so surreal.
