Feed the birds, tuppence a bag...

I love Pro D Days. I love 'em even better when the sun is shining and friends want to hang out with us. We went to Campbell Valley Park to feed the birds. Kandace showed us how to do it.

David was very good at standing still and waiting for the birds.

The birds just weren't coming to their hands. So we tried putting the seed on their heads. Success!

It is the coolest feeling having them perch on your fingers and eat. They stayed quite a while on my hands.

But some of the kids were antsy, so we moved on to snack time on the bridges.

A squirreel joined us for a while.

And then it was time to go. We finished off the seed.

Watched the ducks fight over it.

And headed home...

So glad to see that you have kept your blog open all this time! I haven't been here in a while, but this is so awesome! The birds are great!! I bet that was really cool! I did that by holding my fingers out near a hummingbird feeder. It took me several days (like nearly a week) of continuing to stay out near the thing and moving closer each day. They finally would either sit on my finger or hover half an inch over my finger and I could raise my finger up and touch them. Which was also awesome and something you might like to try!! *grin* Have a great weekend!
