Thread: Monster on my deck

    Monster on my deck

    I have heard the hummingbirds were aggressive but this morning I found out first hand. I have an HB feeder hanging from the rail of the deck. The little bird decided I was an intruder to be driven off. I had no idea they were so loud when up close -- sounded more like a small airplane when about six inches from my ear!

    We reached an accomidation he is ok as long as I stay beck at least 10 feet -- closer than that and I will get buzzed a time or two.

    Fun to watch the little guy. Will try to get some pictures.

    Good thing God made hummingbirds small--any larger, and we wouldn't be able to go outside.

    We had a Rufous Hb when I lived on the West Coast whom we named "Hitler". That little guy knew NO fear.

    Aren't they fun?
