“They are confident birds”


From the Journal of Henry David Thoreau, February 2, 1854:

“I stole up within five or six feet of a pitch pine behind which a downy woodpecker was pecking. From time to time he hopped round to the side and observed me without fear. They are confident birds, not easily scared, but incline to keep the other side of the bough to you, perhaps.”
