In certain parts of the city, the little Black-capped Chickadees will fly down to your hand, even if you are simply pointing something out to someone or even just raising your camera to take a photo. On the rare occasion, a Downy Woodpecker copies its Chickadee friends. This little male gave this person the thrill of a lifetime when it landed on her hand.
