Today while birding Holcomb Farm in Granby I observed a Ruby Throated Hummingbird attacking a Chimney Swift. Seems odd that the hummer would perceive the swift as a threat unless it just felt like harassing it. When I consulted Bent’s Life Histories the same behavior with a swift was noted. Interesting!
