Is that a chickadee?  If so they seem to be very amenable to this as I went to Canada Burlington a few years ago and on walking in the Royal Botanical gardens, I found birds kept flying at my hands when i was making a gesture.  In the end I realised they thought my hand going out meant I was giving food.

So we went back again armed with food, and indeed got a lot of chickadees, and some red winged blackbirds, and even a woodpecker on our hands.  I will see if I can find the photos.

But that's a lovely photo and as you say regular feeding must be what does it.

So you get chickadee's in the Netherlands?  It's odd then that we don't get them in the UK, but they do get then in Canada.

It's not a chickadee, that's a North American bird. It's a Great Tit. (Waiting for profanity filter to step in).
