Daddy called late yesterday morning to see if we wanted to pick him up from work early and head to the zoo. It was a beautiful day, and he was suffering from Spring Fever, apparently. Since we homeschool, plans are pretty flexible (if Mommy is) and we're able to do things spur of the moment.
We have missed the Lorakeets the last couple times to the zoo, so we went there first thing this trip. They weren't selling nectar because they said the birds weren't hungry but that there were lots of cups of it left behind and we could feel free to try to feed them with the leftover cups. It turned out to be one of the best experiences we had with the birds! Indeed most of the birds weren't coming for the nectar, but we were able to coax several of them down for us, and they stayed and ate several cupsful that we had.
