Defender of the garden

This young guy like to hide in our pine trees protecting his turf. You can see his little red feathers on the side of his neck showing he is a young male. When he sees another hummingbird he flies out and starts fighting.

I love their color when the sun catches the feathers just right. That irradescence is beautiful.

I'm glad I stopped by. This visit reminded me to refill my feeder.
