Clam Cove is a very protected anchorage with a couple floating homes (now home to a scuba diving business) and a LOT of humming birds. The owner has 4 feeders and has to fill each one twice a day. We went out kayaking, and then stopped to talk to him, and the birds never stopped feeding while he stood inches away from a feeder.
