Birds eating from my hand

A couple of weeks ago, I went to a meet-up at the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary with the Boston Gay Women's Meet Up. We hiked into the woods and the birds, mostly black-capped chickadees, flew onto our outstretched hands to feed on the seeds and peanuts we were offering. It was truly one of the most wonderful experiences I've ever had. I had foolishly forgotten to bring the memory card for my camera, but some of the other women got some great shots and posted them on the Meet Up website.
