• Aggressive Rufous Hummingbird Youngun

    This summer we have twice experienced the aggression of young Rufous Hummingbirds, first in Arizona in July and now in August up at Dumont Campground near Steamboat Springs. We put out a feeder and within an hour a juvenile Rufous adopted it as his own. From then on we only got the occasional "other" hummer, immediately chased off by the young Rufous male. Below is a series of images of our fella perched near the feeder or chasing off an "intruder".
