Food Fight

As the level of the seed drops in the feeder, there are fewer feeding ports available. This is leads to some interesting fights for that remaining seed.

Fighting for space

Ruby-throated hummingbirds are extremely territorial. They spend most of there time chasing each other away from the feeders

The Oriole feeder presents a problem. The holes are big enough for wasps and yellow jackets to enter, where they drown and foul the sugar-water mix. I have to change it on a fairly regular basis.

These birds are such acrobats and so much fun to watch
