In reply to you Barbarar20, I get the nesting balls at the Wild Birds Unltd. store, but they would be easy enough to make. You just need raw cotton and yarn pieces and hold this together with a very open netting tied at the top and bottom. The hummers know what to look for, as this is the second year I have had the balls for them. Other birds collect form the balls too. Even placing an old fashioned string mop outdoors will attract nesting birds for the materials. These are Anna's hummers and are here year around. Last year I had a female nesting in my wind chimes right out the front door.

Jill, I like your shot of the mourning doves sitting in front of the barbecue. It as if they are waiting for the heat to come on and warm them.
