Now girls....

Saturday we had a squabble ....
It all started when this new girl showed up (a downy woodpecker), she decided she was going to drink from the hummingbird feeder. didn't go over well with the regulars.
The next thing you know, a small turf war broke out, buzzing and flitting about, it was quite a show. The Downy stood her ground but eventually went on her way.

It is amazing how something so small can be so violently territorial. We've often mused that it would not be safe to venture outside if they were the size of 'regular' birds!
Gotta love their spunk!!
