We had a fabulous afternoon hike today! The weather was so mild. We were actually expecting storms and high winds but had a nice afternoon and then just a refreshing rain late this afternoon and evening.
Soon after we started feeding the birds, a couple of men came down the trail. They were so curious and did not believe that the birds would feed from our hands. The children shared some of their peanuts with them and the man in the black vest was thrilled that a couple of chickadees came and ate from his outstretched hand. He told me later that in all his 86 years he had never experienced anything like that and that you are never too old to learn something new.
The last seven photos were taken by Ben, who loves to photograph things as much as I do!
