I had a pair of Threshers’ that returned every year for over eight years.  I spoiled them with their favorite treats, Cashews, and Strawberries.  They would come to my back door whenever they heard me open it.  They got so bold, that they would come to the sliding glass door, and loudly call until I opened the door.  Sometimes the would peck lightly at the glass.  When the had babies, they would take live crickets out of my fingers and feed the babies.  I got used to having them, almost as pets.  However, this year they didn’t show up.  A new pair are in the trees around my house, but have never shown any interest in coming to my back door, even though I put out food and water.  I miss those birds, that were so trusting and friendly.
