Our regulars were chased off by this tough little Rufous. No one was getting a drink at the feeder with him on patrol.
Then today Mr. Black-chinned came on the scene. Haven’t see him since last fall. He’s chased everybody off, including Rufous.
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!
