The airways around our home here in Southeast Missouri is filled with ruby throated hummingbirds now days. They are eating 64 oz of sugar water a day. This is a common sight when you sit out on the deck and watch the tiny buggers zip around chirping and fighting like mad dogs. They are very territorial and with so many young males coming to maturity in such a small space they are constantly in battle.
