Crazy Little Birds

August 13th, 2008

We seem to have a few new male hummingbirds around chasing all the young ones away from our feeders. I think they may be ones that are migrating through, since they just appeared today. There are 2 of them as far as I can tell. One sits on top of the feed in the back and chasing away any other birds that come and the other one sits in the maple tree on the side of the house and chases away any birds that try to go to the side feeder. They’re so crazy!

They will probably be leaving soon, the males usually migrate mid-august and the females follow in a couple weeks. The young may stick around through October.
