The Brat~~guarding HIS feeders!

Meadowlands, MN (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: For the last week or so this little guy has been parked on or near the two feeders that are about 10 feet apart in the yard, keeping all the others from drinking at them! He sits out there for hours!! I finally had to put up another feeder clear around the house where he can't see it in order for the other dozen or more Hummingbirds to be able to eat!!

Thanks for your note, Sharon. :-) Someone else wrote me an email saying: "He's doing that because he is fattening himself up. The males leave on migration at least two weeks ahead of the females and juveniles. You will notice that he will be long gone before them. I always get sad when the males get like this because I know it's getting time for them to leave." I never knew this before!

Thanks, Bob! I sure wish he'd give up his self-appointed guard duty and just relax!

A little tyrant! Call him Napoleon. I have two feeders on opposite sides of the back yard with a bush between.

That's the best way to do it. I have four feeders around the house and each one is positioned where it can't be seen from the others. It makes it so they all get a chance to eat. Thanks for sharing!

Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)
