... is possible if the birds are willing

This bird was just posing it seems, was taking during my trip in Edinburgh
Great photo! How close were you?
The Robin in Britain does tend to be a very confiding bird. I often deliberately disturb fallen leaves whilst on a country walk and the local Robin will soon be down to investigate for possible food in the litter, coming very close in order to do so. Likewise gardeners will find it coming very close if they are digging the soil for example. I'm given to understand that in continental Europe it is a less confiding species.
Perhaps there are such things as Robin stew, or Robin pâté which cause the difference...
I did see a few on my winter walk today, but to get a shot like this i'd need a 300-400mm zoom
maybe 2m away ? or less
In the UK Robins find that what we call mealworms are irresistible, once they have the taste for those then they can often be tempted onto a persons hand to feed on them out of your palm.
My Granny has a blackbird who knocks on the window every day for a bit of cheese.
I often have giant fluorescent bats coming to visit me and perch on my shoulder, but to be honest, I'm a bit worried about the mushrooms my greengrocer is selling at the moment
I'd be more worried about the Gloria persona myself than some dodgy mushrooms
Picture it !
