Swallow Update July 19, 2021

Ok, I'm gonna start calling this guy Michael Rotondo as he doesn't want to leave. Mom has been calling all day - can birds go hoarse? She's popped in a couple times with food for the chick. Dad seems to have given up feeding the chick. 

Our hummingbirds have returned in force. Over the last couple weeks, we had occasional visits to the feeders. Rarely did two birds show up to contest the feeder. Yesterday, I noticed we've once again got a full time battle in progress. There's one male that sits on the nearby perch and chases off any other males and some of the females that dare try use his feeder. At one point this afternoon, we had six birds in full swoop to decide who got to feed. 


Oh thank you.
