    I'm guessing that was a city bird.  City birds and squirrels are a completely different "breed" than country/suburban ones, aren't they...    smile

    (Of course, then again, I live in a suburb about 30 miles in from the coast; and our shopping center has sea gulls, who are none-too-uncomfortable around shoppers.)

    It sounds like the squirrels we have around here. I was sitting on my deck enjoying a cup of coffee when a squirrel climb its way up, sat only a less then a foot from me, nibbling some kind of nut in his mouth. I shooed it, booed it, and waved my hands. He looked at me like I was some kind of nut, seemed to shrug his shoulders and climb up to the third floor. I was insulted. LOL! True story.

    Round my part of the world sea gulls don't care about humans and will often steal food (mainly chips and Cornish pastys!) from people's hands.

    I saw my first (and only) coyote (about twenty feet from my house) a couple of years ago.  It was a really beautiful animal, but I was spooked to see it so close at 3:00 in the afternoon.  I've always heard they're afraid of humans, so, keeping the storm door as my "shield" I opened it, and said something like, "Go on.  Scoot."  I thought he'd be shocked and terrified when a human showed up.  He wasn't.  He just kind of looked at me, appeared to think about it, and slowly sauntered away.  He was obviously more used to people than I had always believed they are.
