Young hummers join their parents

Photo by BarrytheBirder
It's that time of year, mid-August, when first-year hummers are matured and now join their parents at the backyard feeders.   But it is not all familial bliss.   Every hummer is pre-occupied with protecting what it thinks is its own private feeders and chasing away all interlopers, even if its a brother, sister or parent.   The backyard is a constant swirl of small squealing birds chasing each other.
