So I have sugar feeders nearby a peanut crack corn feeders by about eight feet you would think that would be a sufficient distance for neighborhood peace but no. Instead wow the hummingbird was humming about the sugar feeder a black-capped chickadee came in to hang on the peanut feeder. Well that's not tolerable says the hummingbird and went after the chickadee and in the nearby vicinity chased it with his pointy beak about and around and followed it up through the pine tree and away.
Identifying and logging bird sightings is useful and I'm sure a wonderful pastime. but in my mind I mostly catalog interesting behaviors.
