My World Tuesday = Four Hummingbirds In Our Yard

My World Tuesday = Four Hummingbirds In Our Yard





We have counted at least four hummingbirds flying around our backyard at the same time. You think hummingbirds are sweet and innocent. Well these four guys (gals?) are fighters. They chase each other away from the feeder. Why they do this Jack and I can't figure out. Especially since we have five feeders in our yard. Why can't they share and play nice? Tomorrow I'll post some videos I took of their fights.

Now please go visit other My World Tuesday memes and find out what's happening around our world.

They are some hungry birds who know where the living is fine! These are just great. Thanks for sharing the small and the mighty.

That's just the way it is with humming birds. The rufous is the most ferocious of all. Ours have at last come back since the sun has come out as per normal after weeks and weeks of cloudy gloomy weather. I usually keep a close eye on the hummers if I'm near their feeder.

Lucky you. On our continent there are no hummingbirds, just a little honeyeater that sometimes hovers.
