Today, July 21st, I sit here at my computer, looking out the window on the backyard where the birds of every kind are enjoying their gnoshing. Finches, sparrows, titmice are at the bird feeder hanging from the apple tree. On the ground, underneath the feeder, the wrens are searching for their favorite insects. A very peaceful experience for all.
Twenty feet away at the hummingbird feeder hanging from the patio is the hot and fiery battle of the hummingbirds going on. This battle continues daily as the Alpha male we've named Bobby, chases all the others off as they come in for their fair share of the food.
