We're having a great time bird watching! We've seen tons of hummingbirds, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Finches, and Robins. We have a few different families of geese with babies and ducks. I always forget how tiny and amazing hummingbirds are!
The house is on a canal that leads to the Albermarle Sound in the middle of a protected bird sanctuary and wetland. The sunrises are incredibly beautiful, and if you come out early enough you can see egrets fishing for their breakfast.
I think we're going to get the fishing poles out this afternoon after a picnic, water balloon fight, and some swimming. There are so many fish here that the kids can catch 4 or 5 in an hour without much effort. We catch and release after taking pictures of the many species of fish found in the canal.
