- Parachute (July 2015). Brenda Savey-Rice photographed a pied hummingbird at her bird feeder. She states that “he … doesn’t like to fight with all the others […] it will return when no one is around.” This is a typical behavior for white hummingbirds that are often bullied by their “normal” counterparts. Brenda describes his or her tail to be black and white striped.
