We’re also a Hummingbird heaven. While we always have many of these precious birds calling the lodge home for the summer, we were amazed at the number this summer. Once the babies were born, there was approximately 70 birds buzzing about. They are very active and entertaining to watch as they chase each other away from one of the 5 feeders, of which we fill several times a day. They’re very busy, and they keep us busy too.
