Hummingbird Highlights, Part 3 (feeder wars)

I once read that a biological station in Monte Verde, Costa Rica, had to take down their hummingbird feeders because one individual hummingbird decided it was his territory and wouldn’t allow any other bird to visit.  Hummingbirds do tend to be super territorial, so I was surprised at the number of birds at these feeders in Arizona.

It’s amazing how they contort their little bodies

Certainly the most hummingbirds I’ve ever seen on one feeder! Maybe it’s because they’re all females

If you’re doing an art project with hummingbirds in flight, this should give you a lot of reference material!  Haha
