Hummingbirds Continue

Seeing lots of juvenile hummingbirds. Have: Black-chinned, Rufous & Calliope. The only time they're semi-tolerant of one another is right at daybreak. They're at least civil, with a hummer perched at each port & sev hovering, waiting their turn. But, after about 20 minutes, pure chaos. I've seen at least 11 individual hummingbirds, including a juv Black-chinned with some leucistic wing feathers. 

Based on previous correspondence with Bill Moore, calculated by how much nectar they're consuming, at least 35 diff't hummers are hitting the feeder. Also, saw 2 juvenile Spotted Towhees scratching under the seed feeder, bringing nesting birds to #31 for the place.
