Gay male hummingbirds feel duped. Bisexual hummingbirds shrug shoulders.

Ruby throated and Allen's frequent the feeder and it's like total war. I added another one and it got worse. They even dive bomb me when I go to refill it.

They should just go binary.

So females evolving to look like males is just nature being nature?

A natural evolution? Bible thumpers sure won't like hearing that!

Oh My! Cross dressing hummingbirds.

In Alabama a hunter shot an eight point buck deer that turned out to be a doe.

Wildlife officials said it is unusual but not unknown. Nobody seemed outraged about the transgender deer.

Cuttlefish males can pretend to be females if they are small. Cannabis plants are male, female, and in-between. Some lizards can have young w/o makes (so can cannabis). Mother nature is not black and white, dumb human logic is.

I'm not religious, never have been, but I've always seen this as a stupid 'counterargument' against so-called Bible thumpers. So, you're saying anything that's natural in the animal kingdom is fair game for humans? It sure comes across that way.

We are part of the animal kingdom and subject to the same kinds of biological mistakes. People don't ask to be born with gender screw-ups anymore than that deer did.

Few years ago, sitting one afternoon near the colored liquid bird feeders in a Midwestern garden along hummingbirds' annual migration route, it finally struck me, why the Aztecs' war god took the form of a hummingbird. They are sharply aggressive little critters that exhibit qualities someone in a fight just might find handy.

We have one hummingbird that just sits below the feeders waiting for others to come so they can attack. They are mean birds!

Someone tell Sentinel that a Human is part of the animal kingdom. The truth is, more facts are inclined towards humans being animals. And according to various research and studies, scientists have come to the conclusion that humans are undoubtedly animals. www.ourendangeredworld.com

I see you Failed biology along with Civics. Too stupid or just not in that grade yet????

Humans are not a part of nature ??

It sure sounds like that is what you are saying.

"Humans are not a part of nature ??"

Red herring. Yea, humans are a part of nature. Lots of things are part of nature. So what? Rape and cannibalism are both common in the animal kingdom.

"humans are a part of nature."

Then what we do is also natural.

Rape and cannibalism are both common in the animal kingdom.

So ... are you actually comparing our natural sexual evolution and in particular transsexuals and cross dressing to rape and cannibalism?

Why yes, it appears you are! Gee ... why not murder too?

"Rape and cannibalism are both common in the animal kingdom."

You can tell when someone's moral compass is broken when they have to compare someone's sexual preferences to rape and cannibalism.

How exactly does someone's sexual preferences ( that have evolved to be different than your own) "pick your pockets or break your bones" sentinel??
