And then there were four...

My hummingbird population is growing. I now have four visiting me on the deck. But the ditzy little buggers spend so much time fighting over the feeder that none of them get to eat much. It's amusing to watch them divebomb each other though. It's kind of like watching a Warner Brothers cartoon.

Interestingly they seem to fight more in the evening. Somehow, in the morning they seem to manage to visit in shifts and the food disappears quicker. I still don't see why they can't all share though. It is a four station feeder. They could all feed at once and everybody could be happy. It's not like I don't fill it as soon as it's empty. Silly birds.
