Smart Hermie

Finally, a hermit thrush with a brain. I think this Hermie has learned that if one eats with a human guardian  no raptor will swoop down for the grab. Hermie sat on fence, saw me, flew to ground at my feet. I backed up. Hermie followed. I backed up again. Hermie came closer. Repeat that over and over and the message is clear. I stayed till Hermie got tired of pecking at ginko berries. I've always wanted to be a bird baby-sitter.
Squirrel didn't mind either if I stood guard.
