hummingbird is guarding the feeder
We love to watch the hummers feeding and flying around. At the beginning of summer all was well. Everyone was sharing the feeder. We had 2 feeders. A few weeks ago one big fellow decided no one else was going to use the feeder. He sits in a bush and watches and as soon as another gets near the feeder he swooshes down and chases it away. We sometimes have 3-4 flying around fighting. One actually hit the window today. We put up 2 other feeders in places the bully could not see or so we thought. He seems to be everywhere at once. This is the third year this has happened. Maybe he is inheriting his greediness from his parents. So other than trapping him and taking him down the road and letting him out at someone else's home - what can we do????? Has anyone else ever had this problem??
