Uneasy Truce


Hummingbird’s home base

eatery a testing ground

for wasp’s no-fly zone


This was an interesting little drama. The wasp took up residence, and the hummers would approach very tentatively, just taking a few sips and flying away if the wasp so much as twitched. If I approached, it would fly away but the hummers didn’t mind. After a couple of days, it actually started chasing them off the feeder, so I decided it was time to take decisive action with a rolled-up magazine. Now it’s strictly for the birds again.
