Humming bird war

Humming bird feeders on deck keeps buzzing with food fights.

Humming bird feeders on deck keeps buzzing with food fights.

The birds hover and scout around our deck humming bird feeders. These birds flap their wings so fast, they are a blur. They buzz like little buzz saws when they whiz by my ear to the feeders.

They have their own hierarchy on the feeders. Some stay perched in the trees waiting for the right opening to come to feed. The Oriole stays away from the dive bombing humming birds.

If I am bored, I can sit and smoke a cigar on the deck to watch the aerial show of humming birds feeding. 3 feeders get emptied twice a day. My wife makes a gallon jugs of mix every couple of days to keep them supplied. We do have a few fat humming birds!
