They crowded ’round our three feeders in a frenzy, dive-bombing each other for room at the fourteen available spaces. The yellow male finally gave up and clung to the bottom of the feeder, where one of the others began feeding him black-oil sunflower seeds. I’ve never seen anything quite like it before – have you?
