above: Rufous Hummingbird who jealously guards a feeder in the Country Club Area. He is actually only about 2" long, beak included.

below: Hummingbird and Kingbird teasing each other (playing chase, unless it was war) while a finch looks on in wonder. It was windy and beginning to rain.

below: These gals are usually chasing each other away from various food sources, but the rain brought a momentary truce...

And one of the above is surely the little one who made this nest near my porch, where there is another feeder... the nest is about the size of half a Ping-Pong ball.

Cool that you have a hummingbird nest near your porch. Yes, rain or falling darkness does induce the little Black-chins to feed cooperatively.
