Aloha hummingbirds! I have been wanting to build a hummingbird perch for awhile. Finally did it today and of course I had to include a few shells to make the local backyard tiki gods happy. Let's see if it works.

It is so pretty! I never really thought about it, but I suppose hummingbirds do rest once in a while. What better place to hang than right there?

Now I have the Tiki Room music stuck in my head Tongue I think that the Tiki gods really should be pleased with this teeny perch. You will have to show us pictures if you ever catch a hummingbird sitting on it! So cute Smiley

Thanks all! It was a fun little project. No hummingbirds yet! C'mon birdies! Hang out, I will mix you a drink with a little umbrella!

So CUTE!  I hope they flock to your back yard just to get a chance to sit there Grin

I think we must have a hummingbird nest in our willow.  Last week I was sitting on the top step of the stairs with my hands over my eyes to shield the sun, when suddenly there was a loud buzzing and breeze.  It was a HUGE hummingbird about six inches from my face.  I think they didn't like me being so close to the tree.  Maybe I need a perch for them Grin
