Looks just like my feeders right now with the broad-tails trying to keep their rights to the feeders while the rufouses (rufi?) go all big-tailed.

Wow! Nice shots! I've never seen more than one or two hummers at a time around here.

They're getting ready to head down south. They fatten themselves up down here. We have up to 10 and 12 at each feeder. i went from changing out the feeder once a week to once a day. They drain it daily. LOL

Same here, Totah Sam, except our rufous usually stay just two weeks and we're going on three weeks now. The broad-tails are not amused.

Man, the Anna's here are way more aggressive than that. They won't even let another get near the feeder. Must be like that song "A Boy Named Sue." (only old timers will get that reference.)

I'm not admitting to knowing that particular lyric (she said, from her walker), but I'd love to see the Anna's if they're more aggressive than the Rufous. I get to actually feeling sorry for the male broad-tails after a time. Sort of.

awesome pictures! I wish there were more than ruby-throated here in Michigan. They are entertaining though.
