Bird Fight on My Hand

This is from our latest visit to Campbell River Valley Regional Park. Last summer you could say the birds were interested in the seeds on our hands, but now that it's winter they were downright enthusiastic. We couldn't keep them away! It is truly a unique experience to have these little creatures perched on your fingers.

Cubs Do the Strangest Things

Last week in cub scouts the entire pack assembled outside of Top Pot Doughnuts - the place where Grampa Tommy takes all the kiddos when he's visiting. They assembled "LED Throwies" which included a magnet

and then pitched them up at the big doughnut where some dads were waiting to straighten things out and make it look good.

I'm still not clear as to exactly why they did this, but at the end of the event, the big doughnut was twinkling with tiny multicolored lights and everyone got a glazed old fashioned to go.

Not bad for a pack meeting!
