    Activity #1- some of my most favorite birds are ones I have been fortunate enough to see but they are not native to my home (North Carolina, USA). I have seen the Atlantic Puffin (Alcidae fam.) off the coast of Maine.  Hundreds of birds were nesting on a rocky cliff and they dove into the water over and over again to catch fish for their young. I think they look adorable and are so unique. Another is the Blue-Footed Booby (Sulidae fam.) in the Galápagos Islands. Their brightly colored feet and legs are quite humorous. They appeared to be more like a cartoon than a real bird. Within my home state, my favorite bird is the Ruby-throated Hummingbird. We have a handful that come each year to feed in our yard (Apr-Oct).  These tiny birds are so amazing and beautiful. In Mexico I once saw a mother hummingbird feeding its young in a tiny nest in a bush. I still can’t believe I happened upon that wonder!  Not sure of the exact species.
