Hi Barry,

I had a similar experience with a Jacky Winter recently. He was in a tree at
a friends house and he allowed us to observe him from only a few feet away.
I dared to go closer and managed to gently stroke his breast for quite a
while. He eventually flew off to a nearby tree.

We wondered if he was sick, or perhaps even a pet but he appeared perfectly
healthy and was well groomed and looked in good condition. Perhaps he was
just friendly towards a bunch of bird-friendly people :-)

Anybody else had a similar experience?
