Chubs and Friends

I noticed a few days ago that the fairies have been fighting. One will be sitting on the perch eating the nectar, and another one will dive-bomb the one eating and scare him away. This morning I noticed that in the palm tree by our window there was a chubby, little hummingbird. I talked to him for a minute, letting him know he could go over to the feeder and eat some of the fairy food. Well, all he did was sit in the palm (apparently I must not speak hummer). Anyway, Ryan and I were on the porch and we noticed that when any other hummingbird would fly by the feeder, Chubs over in the palm would chirp at them and they would fly away. I don't want them fighting over it, there is enough to share. And I don't want to have one mean, obese hummingbird sending all the others away from 'his' food. I guess we will just have to wait and see how it plays out. Maybe we will need to get another feeder, one for him, and one for the other fairies to share.
