Backyard Wars

055 - Copy

Our regulars were chased off by this tough little Rufous.  No one was getting a drink at the feeder with him on patrol.

009 - Copy

Then today Mr. Black-chinned came on the scene.  Haven’t see him since last fall.  He’s chased everybody off, including Rufous.

062 - Copy

And just to add a bit more confusion, this Mrs. Yellow-hooded Oriole is feeding at the aloe flowers (hummer favorite) and on the humming bird feeders.  This kind of warring is the fun kind!
