The kids walked with my parents to a nearby bird rescue and learned all about how the birds are cared for before release. They loved it! They got to watch the feedings and decided they would help the wild birds too.
They first went to a nearby park with my step-mom and had a marvelous time hand feeding the birds who swooped down, but soon came back out of food. They reloaded and went back to the park, but the birds there were not so interested the second time around.
Later, we headed to the beach to see if the seagulls would be hungry. Yep!
