Hummingbird Battle

Hummingbird Battle

Everyday, from dawn until dusk, beginning in the spring and ending in the fall, an ongoing battle of epic proportions takes place. Three of my four hummingbirds are males. They’re pretty temperamental and very territorial. I’ve tried putting up more feeders but it just makes everything worse. Imagine hummingbirds in hyperdrive. The littlest hummingbird, a shy female, gets squawked at and scared away all throughout the day. She barely has a chance to sit on the feeder perch for a few seconds.

But not today. She held her little hummingbird ground and I was fortunate enough to capture the whole battle.

(spoiler alert)

It ended in her victory.
