A RENDEZVOUS OF THE TINY FEATHERED FOLK As many as eight Hummers at one time have visited this porch of a summer cottage in Maine. Other birds, chipmunks, and flying squirrels have also been attracted to its clematis-covered precincts to be "shot" by a camera (see text, page 738).

Larger birds usually forsake the field when heattacks, but bumblebees are not so discreet or else are more intrepid, for they fre quently dispute the issue (see text, page 736).
