These aren't your average sweet little birdies! Both male and female hummingbirds of some species are quite aggressive, territorial, and vigorously defend their food sources against intruders.

While those long, sharp bills may look like formidable stabbing weapons, the birds' head, neck and body weight just don't pack enough strength or mass to do much damage, so fights typically involve only mild biting and poking with the bill, and grabbing with the feet as well - not even with enough force to pull out feathers in most cases.

All of the birds shown here are Allen's Hummingbirds. Males have lots of tan/rusty plummage and a bright red irridescent throat patch (called a "gorget") while the females are more green and white with only a spotted throat patch and a few irridescent red feathers.

The slow motion footage was filmed with a Casio Exilim EX-F1 Pro at 300 frames per second and upscaled to 720p, resulting in a 10x slower than real life playback. Real-time scenes were filmed with a Canon HF100 HD camcorder at 30fps.

The soundtrack is "Jaws2" and "Prophet" from the "Random" CD by Technician (yours truly), album and single tracks available on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/rand... full artist discography and CDs available at HTTP://technician.jcmdi.com
