It is so funny, he sits and his little head turns from side to side constantly patrolling the area for another HB to just try.
I have seen him back one of the females up against the house and dance back and forth in front of her just daring her to move towards the feeder. If someone just flies by he will give chase.
About two weeks ago I was watering the garden in the evening and he came flying up and started doing his little intimidation dance in front of me, well he got a shock when I turned the hose on him........he hasn't tried that again.
We also have loads of Wrens, Steve build several houses for them winter before last and they really seem to be thriving in the yard and woods. We found out that they will hatch at least two clutches of eggs if they have a different house to move into, they don't use the same one twice in one year. They do love to sing and are not much afraid of you, so they come up on the deck and sit on the rail and even walk around on the deck while we are out.
This guy was singing and didn't have his tail up...... they are so cute.
We have loads of birds, so we always have bird stories..........
