Birds and Bees Corner

There are lots of these around town: little pockets of vibrant flowers and a stopover for birds and bees. There's always something in bloom on the island, so the birds don't usually have a problem finding anything to eat; lots of berries everywhere, and plenty of nectar for hummingbirds. We have a large number of migratory birds that come through the island, as well. In fact, at the inn, we usually have two days every spring when flocks of every type of bird that you can imagine congregating all around the yard (primarily around the patio) stripping all of the hollies and palm trees of their seeds and berries. This year, we even had a group of Cedar Waxwings that lined up and passed berries down the line to each other.

If you're interested in birds, bees, flora and fauna, you should come for our Wild Amelia Nature Festival the thrid weekend in May. It's shaping up to be a really nice event.

P.S. If you're counting, this post is a day late because I couldn't log on to update the blog last night. I could view it, but just couldn't get in.
