Hi All wavey ,
The last two weeks I went from one occasional hummer at the feeder to four crazy birds kissies . It appears that as one stops by for some eats, the other two to three fly by and they all take off after each other laugh . Almost like a bunch of kittens thumbup

They are fighting. Ounce for ounce Hummers are one of the most vicious birds on earth. By all means put up another feeder or several, LOL.

No kidding!
Last year I had to literally separate two of them.
They were fighting, and one flew into the door. When it hit the ground, the other one jumped right on it...right on the ground. I ran outside and scooped them both up before the cat saw them. I had to pull the one off the other one and then turn it loose. While I still had the addled one in my hand, the other one came right back and started fighting with it...while I was still holding it. I sheltered it from the mean one for a few seconds so it could get it's senses back, then it flew off...and started fighting again.

When I am working in the area where all the hummingbird feeders are, I get hit in the head quite often by them as they are fighting.

Weird little creatures..... luv

Oh, those Hummers. No matter how many feeders you put up, they will fight over them. Your right about them being tough. Can you imagine what it would be like if they were as big as Robins????? laugh
