This male, trust me it is a male, has staked out our front porch feeder as his own. As most of you know hummingbirds are extremely territorial and will fiercely drive off any intruding bird. This male will set on the feeder for 15 to 30 minute periods without flying off – once in a while taking in some nectar. If an intruder stops by he usually simply flaps his left side wing and the intruder darts off. Once in a while he has to chase them but he quickly returns.
I had to shoot these through our front window screen so they’re not the greatest.
