Squabble at the feeder

I watched these two flutter around the feeder for a bit. It may appear that the tiny hummingbird was scared off. Let me tell you he’s a tough little fella. He still got his lunch!

I am fascinated watching the birds at our hummingbird feeder. Finches, woodpeckers and yes the little hummingbirds. We even have flame-colored tanagers come to this feeder in the spring. I saw my first one a few days ago.

Hopefully this will give you a smile to start your weekend ๐Ÿ˜Š

  3. Now that is something that I’ve never seen. There is only one hummingbird species in my area, and they are very territorial with each other.

    1. It is surprising that they all seem to get their time at the feeder. Hummingbirds still come. But I see more other birds than hummingbirds! And who knew that other birds would want sugar water!

    I love watching the hummers at our feeder. There are a lot of squabble here, too! But your photos of these two birds show how courageous a hummingbird can be.

    Glad to hear the little guy held his ground.

    Hummingbirds have an almost magical presence.
