I've had a pretty awesome relationship with a family of birds that lives in a bush next to my home. I posted before about how they just started coming right up to me, even landing on me from time to time.
The two little ones are pretty grown now, and starting to get a little territorial, which I guess is normal. I'm worried that if I keep feeding them, it's not so good for them in the long run. What do you think? Am I just being paranoid?
They've gotten to the point where they come right up to my door and start chirping if I don't come out of the house for a while. I thought it was cute for a bit, then wondered if they are getting too dependent on me. I was away from home for a few days recently, and when I came back as I approached the front door, the 2 young ones flew right at me, so close to my face that I ducked! Am I feeding them too much, or where they just greeting me?
If anyone here has experience with wild birds, I'd love to know if I'm just getting worried over nothing. I don't want to cause them any harm.
