Dominate male Hummingbird
There is one male ruby throated hummingbird in my yard that evedently thinks that the feeders all belong to him. He chases all the other hummingbirds away as soon as they come near the feeders. He sits in a tree close by and waits for them to fly in and as soon as they do, he chases them off. He will fly in every so often to see if there are any others around on the back side of the feeder and if not, he returns to his lookout perch. I thought I was going to have a lot of hummingbirds at my feeder this summer but now I only have one.
Does anyone have any suggestions as what might be done. This is my first year to have feeders and don't know if this is a common thing.
