We love feeding the hummingbirds here at Mourning Dove Cottage.
When I went to fill the feeder the other day I noticed a small leak on the bottom part of the feeder and, needless to say, there was sticky sugar water all over the back porch ~ might I add, a lot of little honey bees flying around too.
Definitely time to buy a new feeder.
I was happy to find this pretty new hummingbird feeder at the garden center.
It looks like it's hand painted and so colorful.
Notice on the photo in the background the mourning dove sitting on her nest. This is the second mama dove that nested in that same nest. It will be fun, once again to watch from my kitchen window, a new mama dove and her babies ~ we've had quite a few this spring. Right now there's another dove nesting in the jasmine over the front door.
We enjoy keeping the birds happy here at Mourning Dove Cottage.
