Hummingbird Fight Season: featuring Bird A and Bird M

Aside from late in the afternoon and early morning, this is the pattern.

Bird A bird lands on the feeder with his head on a swivel.

Then you see the look which means


Bird M flies in like an F/A-18 Super Hornet narrowly missing Bird A.

Bird M’s Lookout

For perspective, this branch is maybe 30 feet from the feeder.

Lather, rinse, repeat. There seems to be a bit of a break early in the morning and later in the afternoon and early evening. Bird M seems to take a break from his protective duty.
