Chickadee Friends at Robert Moses State Park

A few friends and I went to Robert Moses State Park in Massena, NY to do some birding. We were trying to find the Great Grey Owl which was spotted on several accounts this spring in the area. We did not see the owl, unfortunately. BUT! We did have a great encounter while feeding some chickadees. They flew right up and landed on our hands for a few seconds to grab a seed before flitting off again back into the brush. They were so friendly, we could have stayed all day to watch them! Thanks to the others on the trail who gave us seed :)
