NANFA-- Weird Bluegill behavior?

The Two Bluegills I have in my 29 Gallon native tank have seemingly adopted
me as their visual association for food! Every single time I go even into
the room with the tank, they immediately swim in the direction I am and
madly wiggle on the side of the tank that is nearest me like they are
begging for food. Is this normal for them? I am totally surprised that a
wild caught fish could adopt me so readily and look upon me as its source of
receiving food.

I also have a hard time feeding the bigger one because the smaller one, who
I have named Piglet, will aggressively suck up ANY worm that hits the
water--even if he/she has two or three already hanging out of his/her

Anyone have any ideas??
