Hummingbird Friend

One of the most relaxing things in my life is watching birds feed at the bird feeder or play in the bird bath. Today I was inspired to get a hummingbird feeder.

We went to the Wild Bird Center and picked out a feeder and some food. Then we found a nice place outside to put it so that we could watch the birds as we ate our meals. As soon as we walked outside to place the feeder on a pole, a hummingbird flew by. My kids and I were impressed at how quickly the little bird found the feeder!

Later that afternoon we watched as the hummingbird perched itself on the feeder and drank.

"Mommy, that's awesome!" my son said.

I had to agree. Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best.
