[tn-bird] Hummers

My hummer crowd seems to be topping out at about 14 birds visible at one time, 
on occasion.  Four feeders, three small hourglass shaped ones and one large one 
with a sort of bulbous red container.  The hummers seem to prefer the small 
feeders ( I have removed the "bee guards" until Yellowjackets become a problem) 
with four birds feeding at once and others waiting in line for their chance.  I 
happened to look toward my fig tree which has figs about the size of the 
average lemon and noticed two hummers fighting over the chance to sip at a hole 
in an over ripe fruit.  Those things (over ripe figs) sometimes get sorta 
acoholic smelling.  I hope I don't send any intoxicated hummers off to fly 
across the Gulf of Mexico!
