Re(2): Highly Aggressive Ruby-throated Hummingbirds

Different birds. There are at least 6 regulars, maybe as many as 10. Hard to tell as the colouration and perspective on size vary according to lighting, perch, wind, precipitation and avian attitude. When aggressive, they morph visually and dramatically into MMA fighting machines. They are also flying way too fast between the house and the trees, around corners, and in and out of the branches. You can often hear them coming, very briefly, before you see them going. Other birds scatter. Undoubtably some will make an error and not be around for migration. But it is hard to convince kids of any genre to take it easy. They think they are invincible.

Chipping Sparrows are now more abundant than I can recall, ever. AMGO juveniles have very recently showed up en masse at various times. Blue Jays have returned, but in small numbers. Chickadees have reappeared and it sometimes requires two hands to count the number present. My deck has become a flyway.
