This little bird has been visiting for a few weeks now. He comes, than stays away for days and returns on his own schedule. Not sure if he will be able to make the winter outside, so will try to get in contact with a rescue group nearby. He is afraid of me and won't let me come close, so I think it would be very difficult to catch him. But I am no expert when it comes to birds.
And look who is hiding here? This little guy isn't shy at all. I think if I really try I could make him come to take food from my hand. But I think it is better to keep distance. Sometimes it can be dangerous for wild animals to loose the fear of humas. So I just watch him when he comes and looks for nuts in our garden.
