Waiting for a chance to ambush the hummingbird feeder, the flickers hang around the back yard. When one finally gets a chance to cling to the feeder, the hummingbirds attack.
They hover close and twitter furiously in their attempt to dislodge the bigger bird and win the bird battle. Considering that hummingbirds have been known to migrate thousands of miles, that they move at defying speeds, and that they are, in short, strong little buggers, this flicker had better just move on out.
