Do female ruby-throated hummingbirds guard territory?

eric580August 5, 2012

This morning I saw two hummingbirds chasing each other and the female landed on the fence and stayed there for about half an hour. Do female hummers establish territory? Please help.

Yes, female hummers will guard territory.
