Seven of our thrushes (six of them are being sat on by the mother here).

Lovely! Is she nesting inside your house? There seems to be three light sources showing up in her eye and one looks like a fluorescent tube light.

Proof that levitation does work. So why do they need wings?
Great capture.

In our shed. I had the light on to see if it would help my webcam, it looks down into the nest.
If I go in the shed then she just sits there very still, so I avoid eye contact. Obviously I try to
keep out of the shed, and now all are hatched a lot of time she's not sat on the nest. So we get
along OK.
Cheers Brian

Fabulous! Sometimes they just know they are safe. I am trying to communicate with the hawk that frequents our garden. Let us see how it goes - so far he lets me talk and hangs around for a while :)

I think in the end you are just part of the environment, they know that you pose no great danger if they are around regularly. The birds (Mainly magpies) run around behind our dog stealing his breakfast on a morning.
But its a long way from tame.

Maybe there is a little bird trampoline hidden just behind the rail. Really cool shot!

:) That must be a fun sight! My friend's German Shepherd had a particularly rough time with a pair of sparrows. One would distract her and the other would go on a dive and pull off some of her fur! After six or so sorties the dog had enough and ran off under a bed :)
