We've got some new friends

These two our loving our new friends that come and visit us all day long. 

Good morning Friends!

I hung two bird feeders on our pack patio and they have been VERY popular. We might be the only bird feeder in town. It's fun to watch them come and go throughout the day. I didn't know I was going to enjoy watching them so much, and the boys LOVE it!

They line up all along our fence. 

You know, I love to watch and take pictures of our new friends. Although, when I see the picture they do look a little creepy. right?

What you looking at?

Puffing up for the ladies. 

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner our served. 
These birds go through a whole bird feeder in half a day! 
I might not be able to keep this service up on a DAILY basis. 

Once, while the boys and I were outside playing, we got a real treat, a humming bird came to check out our bird feeder. They're really amazing to watch. I was excited for the boys, and I have to admit, for myself, to see this Hummingbird so close up. Unfortunately, we didn't have what the Hummingbird was looking for. I'm now going to get a Hummingbird feeder and hope we get to see more Hummingbirds. 

I have found that me and my feather friends really only have a one sided friendship. They only like to come when I have food up. Go figure. ;)

My kids are all bird lovers too. Our excitement for the summer was when a small bird of prey appeared in the yard.......the yard with baby bunnies.
Luckily, he was little and had been abandoned by his momma so he didn't try to eat anything in the yard:) Jaden just returned him to his owners on the next street over.
Your boys look like they are having a great time watching those little friends of yours.
