As usual we prohibited selfies and took a few Groupies (group Photo’s)

Daan, our birdwhisperer

Daan1

Daan, one of the artists working at Banierstraat, has an almost eerie way with birds. He seems to attract them despite his hairstyle or manner.
Above you see him with a young bird that came landing on his T-shirt (is it a wren (winterkoninkje) or a trush (lijster)?? Does anybody know?
Below he has a beautyfull robin (roodborstje) on his arm, that came flying in, and was in no hurry at all to leave.
