Now, with my own kids, I find myself watching birds too :). Both our kids (and our pooch!) are avid fans of the feathered friend. We spot the colorful blue jay, friendly robin, vivid gold finch, among many others. Unfortunately, I am not educated in the way of bird names and habits, but it is slowly coming!
However, humming birds are not common on our little plot of earth. And I am tempted to put up a feeder just to attract these fascinating creatures. hummingbird feeders has a ton of information, as well as feeders to choose from.
Our spring and summer months are so short, it seems. It would be delightful to share the warmth and sunshine with these beautiful birds!
