I have had blue & great tits feeding off my hands at Glasgows Botanic Gardens on a number of occassions.
Has anyone had a robin feed from their hand ? As I have always loved them & that would be a lovely experience. .
Is this a sign of how tame, friendly or used to humans they are, as much as I enjoy it I do appreciate they are wild birds.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Hi Jill, I have had Great Tit's Blue Tit's, Coal Tit's and Robins on my hand the longest was a Robin he was on for four minutes this is why we call him FMR four minutes Robin, last year and this year is no exception, Hazel might still have the clip she took of him on my hand with her phone, but here is one I took at the end of last year I have another on my phone that I have not downloaded yet.
Had this blue tit on my hand.
"Blue Tit Bliss" as I called it as it melted my heart.
