Have you ever fed a Hummingbird?

One of the absolute highlights of our stay at The Peace Lodge in Costa Rica is getting to feed the Hummingbirds.  When you stay at The Peace Lodge you have access to La Paz Waterfall Gardens which is home to rescued wildlife, a butterfly garden, hiking trails to beautiful waterfalls and this wonderful Hummingbird Garden.  Twice a day you can visit the Hummingbird Garden and they allow visitors to hold these little red feeders.  There are seemingly hundreds of birds that will buzz all around and land right on the feeders in your hands!  If you like birds, or even if you didn't think you did, you probably will after this! Feeding the hummingbirds here is really a once in a lifetime experience!

At first it can be a bit unnerving to have these little birds zipping right past you, but soon, before you know it, they will even land right on your fingers!  It's amazing really!

We spent quite a bit of time out there, just enjoying the birds and relaxing.  After the stress of the drive, this was such a wonderful way to get back to the calm!

After a bit it started to rain.  My dad commented that he couldn't remember the last time he was outside in the rain, just sitting and totally enjoying himself.  I was so happy that my parents were enjoying this beautiful country!
