Today in Port Mouton - Feeding the Birds

We spend an inexplicable amount of time here watching the wildlife. Today we watched (and listened to) the loons on the pond. Mr. B was fascinated by an immature osprey. We haven't seen Peg Leg (the one legged gull) yet this year, but we are sure that we will.

Every year we put out our hummingbird feeders and watch them fight over the nectar. Nasty little things, those honeybirds :) (my friend, Sean,'s son called them honeybirds last year. The adorable name stuck).

This year, we are trying some bird seed. I know that you're not really supposed to feed the birds in the summer (it makes them lazy so they won't bother actually looking for food). But here we go...

I'll let you know if it actually draws birds :)
