United States (Washington) A technique that worked again - staying motionless and having the bird come towards me. Just across the border from BC in Point Roberts, Washington.

Thanks all. Yes I’ve started to note the behaviour of foraging songbirds when a human is standing nearby. From what I can tell, there seems to be an invisible perimeter that extends out about 15-20 feet. Outside of that, movement doesn’t seem to affect the behaviour of the foraging bird. Inside that range, I find that passerines tend to change direction and move off slowly with any detectable movement. Of course this varies greatly by species, habitat, conditions etc but is something I’ve kept an eye on more often while keeping in mind the health of the bird.

Excellent focus and good colour. Your technique can work with a number of species and it certainly worked this time.
