Why do humming birds fight over the feeder ?

I have 4 so far humming birds that constantly fight over my feeder. They spend more time fighting over it than they do drinkng from it. They're like little torpedos going after each other. Why?

It's the male who is fighting other males. If you notice, he will let the females come and eat. It's kinda like his own personal harem! He keeps the feeder free of other males while allowing his girls to feed freely! The other male will have to fnd a new feeding ground for himself and his female friends!!
