I put seed outside of my blind, but pretty sure I’m the one being baited in this photo. This one arrived with its mate, they perched above my blind and for several minutes filled the air with an array of clicks, croaks and soft warbles. At one point this one flew down, perched low and close. A minute later, his mate flew down to the seed and fed. With my attention successful baited away from its feeding mate, they left together only one feeding. Amazing.
