Close encounter

The wild birds around here are normally very camera shy. They look like they are totally preoccupied, looking for food, but you get within 10 meters and they're gone. This little thing seemed positively curious and let me come as close as about 3 meters. Unfortunately it was pretty dark under the pine trees with an incoming snowfall so the image stabilization was working overtime but I sort of liked the pictures anyway.

????? ... of the Third Kind. Please, feed them with some seeds on the tree branches, and maybe they will come closer to you, too? ;)
