When I was a child, we trained wild birds to eat out of our hands. We had a big picture window and we fed the birds on the windowsill. Beside the big window was a small one that could be opened. We started putting an old glove on the windowsill with bird seed on it. Once the birds were used to taking food from the glove, we Began sitting on the couch under the window and putting our hands inside the glove. When they got used to that we removed the glove. Only the chickadees were brave enough to clamp their little feet around a finger and pick bird seed from our bare palms, but it was so much fun!
