That is the question!
As you can see from the picture above, the downy woodpecker and black-capped chickadee don’t have a problem sharing the bark butter at the suet feeder. They are peaceably pecking away, each on her own side of the feeder.
However, these two goldfinches aren’t getting along so well on their perch.
And the hummingbird and bee? How do they feel about sharing?
I’m not so sure about the bee, but the expression on the face of the hummingbird makes his feelings very clear. If he could talk, he would be screaming,”Scram! Scat! Skedaddle! I was here first!!!”
…And I wouldn’t blame him one bit!
Would you want to share your beverage with a bee?
