This term was coined by my friend InDaCampo, and it struck me so funny that it’s stuck with me. The hummingbirds frequently visit our terrace so I finally took pity on them and put the feeder back up. It was found within minutes, and it was staked out by our own Little Miss Bossy Pants a short time later.
Ever vigilant, she spends most of her time in a nearby tree and the moment another hummingbird dares approach the feeder, she is on the job chattering and swooping until they are chased off.
This beautiful little bird was lucky enough to stop by in one of those rare moments when LMBP let down her guard and went elsewhere for awhile.
Now, it’s getting dark, a time when the birds want to fill up for the night. Poor LMBP! 😀 She is beside herself trying to control of the situation because there are at least six other birds trying to eat. As soon as she chases one off, there are three more at the feeder taking advantage of her diverted attention. It is quite the ruckus.
We are easily amused here in Panama!
