During the day the Anna’s Hummingbirds fly up and drive each other away from the sugar-water feeder and usually only one bird drinks at a time. The sugar-water feeder has six feeding ports. The hummingbirds’ behavior changes during the late afternoon. As the birds drink sugar-water, preparing for the resting night hours they seem less aggressive. Two, three, or four birds feed at the same time.
