Apple-Green Colored Bird at Hummingbird Feeder

Question: I feed hummingbirds year round, and again this cool morning I have an apple green-colored bird, not an Oriel, trying to feed from
the sugar water. What would it be? Thanks

Hummingbirds chase everything away NEW

Well the problem is that hummingbirds chase away everything they see . . . even other hummingbirds of the same species. They are super territorial. The only thing you can do is try to have feeders which are not within site of each other.

What we do is have a feeder in the backyard and another feeder in the front yard . . . but sometimes a hummingbird will just fly from feeder to feeder chasing away its rivals. There is just not much you can do. At least this is the case for the only hummingbirds we get on the East coast. Maybe the species you get on the West coast are different . . . I honestly have no idea.

Mystery Bird

I live in Modesto, CA and I have a yellowish green bird trying to feed at the hummingbird feeder. I am new to birding & don't know what kind of bird it is. The hummingbirds chase him away but I would like to feed him too. Any idea of what kind of bird it could be?

Have also noticed a green bird feeding at our Hummingbird feeders. Have not been able to get an ID on it.
