So, there are (at least) two male Anna’s hummingbirds zipping around our place and using the nectar feeder. They are very aggressive toward each other, especially near the feeder. I’ve watched them fly at each other, and heard their wings crash against one another. Why would they be so competitive? Boys will be boys? There doesn’t seem to be much materially at stake right now, other than their honor.
