Now that the two feeders have been claimed by one of the three (maybe more?) regular Rufous-tailed Hummingbirds, we have not seen much of this cute Stripe-throated Hermit. (See Les's video below) It came to the Impatiens late one afternoon, and when it was immediately attacked by the bully hummer, it flew into the kitchen through the open doorway. The bully followed, but they both exited the house within a few seconds. Our ceilings are very high and it would have been impossible to catch them in a net or even try to herd them if they stayed near the top.
