Windy weather = cranky birds

Hummingbirds are impatient in the best of times. When the Santanas kick up, though, they're lethal. They fight for position at the feeder, hurl insults in those odd, crackly voices, scream through the air side by side, one bird often forcing the other directly into the ground.

With the naked eye it looks like chaos. Catch them with a camera, though, and it's like a scene from "Gladiator." Is it just me, or does that on the right kind of look like Russell Crowe?
