The pugnacious female that 2 weeks ago fought off a male hummingbird that had been resident at my feeder all winter, just chased off a Carolina wren!!
The wren is resident in my back garden and often lands on the hummingbird holder on its way to the bird bath below. The female hummingbird was at the feeder when the wren alighted on the holder and she immediately made menacing movements toward the wren. As the wren flew down towards the bird bath, the female humming bird attacked the wren -- dive-bombing -- and chased the wren away
