Hand feeding the Robins

I started putting some mealworms in a dish and placing it on the floor for the Robins. Once the Robins associated mealworms with the dish I tried holding the dish out at arms length. I didn't get much luck at first but they eventually trusted me enough to take the food.

One Robin known as 'Bob' was very bold; I once found him inside my flat looking for the mealworm stash!
