Thanks all. A nectar source is all important to these guys and they fight for it big time. AZ is in a big drought and there were no flowers thus there was a lot of competition at feeders.

Jeff, it was shot at 1/6400.

We have a couple feeders just outside our porch window where we view them at every meal time. Have seen them jab at one another and do lots of chasing but never got a shot like yours. Great work. Our next door neighbor has six or so feeders and sometimes up to a couple dozen or more birds at a time, usually all very congenial! We're on a little river 7 miles west of Cheasapeake Bay in VA

thanks, Klaus.

Cdug, your Ruby Throated hummers just aren't as pugnacious as these Rufous. Sometimes there would be 20 hummers trying to get to 8 feeding ports, so it made for a lot of competition, but Rufous are very aggressive with other hummers.
