    My wife came home with another hummingbird feeder after going a couple years without. I didn't miss the mess of them when dripping sugar water all over the deck. Besides staining the deck black it attracted insects, especially ants.

    So, I built this swing out arm to hold it out from the deck. It has a locking pin to hold it in position. It also swings back over the deck for servicing. In time we'll see how it works. It was a little hot for welding

    Wife bought some kind of flower that they seem to like. We got a humming bird coming every day to feed off of it. Quite fun to watch him feed.

    You need to patent that design and start selling them. I think you just found your retirement plan

    It sure didn't take them long to find the feeder!
