This week we finally got a feeder up on the column on the patio, right outside the back door. We've been treated to some amazingly aerobatics as at least five hummingbirds swoop around the back yard in the battle for the feeders.
And the winner? Well I guess that would be this little guy...
He tirelessly defended this feeder and the feeder you can see in the background, plus the Flame Acanthus and the Hamelai Patens. I think the others managed to sneak a few sips in here and there but I was worried they were just going to wear themselves out. They wore me out!
