With it's back toward the finches and orioles debating over the grape jelly, this hummingbird kept coming and going undisturbed to feed by itself.
Every once in a while an unwary finch would perch above the hummingbird feeder only to be aggressively chased away by the hummingbird. They are known to be very aggressive and protective of their food and territory. "Size wise" they get the job done as the other birds depart quickly when chased by the little "hummer".
