I have 3 females who continue to squabble over one particular feeder, even though I have 3 spaced around the back yard.
Here is one of them who has started sitting on the hanger and guarding the feeder. This is a recent thing as they have been
simply fighting whenever one is feeding. Silly girls!

They are so funny to watch!

They are indeed! My hummers from the 'hood' are gone. Not seeing a lot now, but the visitors come every day.

Linda: This one would fly off to see if the other hummer was around, then fly back and take up her perch. She did this about 6 times
and finally the other female showed up and it was on!
