Hummingbird War

We went to WalMart on Tuesday and Cameron had to have this hummingbird feeder. We filled it up and put it out Wednesday night. Thursday morning Cameron sat and started counting how many times a hummingbird came to visit the feeder. We left at 11:30 in the morning and we got back at 3:00. By the end of the day he counted at least 50 visits! and we were gone part of the day! He was so excited!
We call this little guy "Nutcase". Nutty for short. He seems to have taken control of the feeder. He likes to chase away all the other hummingbirds. There is a gruop of about 6 or so that come and try to get to the feeder. One will come in and distact Nutty, while the others swoop down to eat! It is the funniest thing! The kids and I must have sat there fore about an hour watching these hummingbirds!
