Much like the elderly, we enjoy bird watching. In the warmer months, we are especially captivated by hummingbirds. Many of them nest right in our yard and spend the day zipping back and forth to the feeder.
This was our old hummingbird feeder. It was very special because we bought it as a souvenir on our first anniversary. Unfortunately, five years later, it is also very broken. Several of the glass petals have broken off, making it a real challenge to keep all your fingers while refilling it.
Speaking of refills, we brew up hummingbird nectar by the quart and keep it in a big jar in the fridge. Those guys are heavy drinkers.
So our new feeder is this big red bottle with a hummingbird on the front. And it says "Perky Pet", so clearly, we had to have it.
The biggest difference between feeders is that our new one has four places for the birds to drink and our old one had just one. I have seen one bird try out multiple drink stations in search of the best spot. I have not seen more than one bird drinking at a time yet, but I have high hopes. I think that if we watch long and carefully enough, we might catch a bird party.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I must finish darning socks before we leave for bingo night.
