I watch the hummingbirds fight over the feeder, flaring their feathers at each other. Such territorial little fellows!

"There's more than enough for all of you," I want to tell them. "Have you considered sharing maybe?"

From what I see, they never really attack each other. Just a lot of hovering and zipping about with feather-flaring, trying to show who's the alpha hummingbird of the hillside. Almost human.

Pathetic.
