All-out battles and little skirmishes continue here in north Stamford.  I've never had so many hummers!  At least 2 each mature males and females, 1 immature male, and 3+ immature females (can't tell these apart).

  Here in Mansfield Center the hummingbird wars appear to have ended between
  one morning and the evening of the same day.  I went to probably more than
  a dozen birds fighting over my feeders and in some cases even agreeing to
  share, to probably three - an adult male and female plus one juvenile
  male.  I'd had many juveniles this year - do they leave their parents'
  territory or are they already moving south?  It seems early/
