Calliope or Broad-tailed Hummingbird, Wildrose Canyon, Mono County, CA, June 13


Recommended Posts

I was in the middle of trying to figure this hummingbird out when I became aware of a Least Flycatcher singing nearby, and than completely forgot about the hummingbird. In person it appeared larger than an Calliope, and about the size of Rufous Hummingbird, although it was hard to judge as there were no nearby hummingbirds. It did have a very noticeable Wing Wirr, much like a Rufous Hummingbird's which is what originally attracted my attention to this hummingbird. Calliope is much more common at this spot, although Broad-tailed has been reported here several times. Sadly I never managed to get a tail spread shot. In these photos is there enough to ID this to species or is it best left as Selasphorus sp.
