Calliope hummingbird?

Recommended Posts

Southern Nevada today. Very cloudy day so lightened the photos. Running the photos thru the Merlin bird ID app gives a result of calliope, which is possible but very rare here. Other hummingbirds I saw today were black chinned, Anna's, and Costa's.  Thanks!

Bill and tail look too long for Calliope and overall shape is not as compact or hunched up as I would expect. Don’t see any peachy wash in flanks either. I don’t think this is Calliope.

I don’t think it’s Anna’s either.

I like Black-chinned or Costa’s here but not sure. Maybe leaning Black-chinned due to shape.

Wait for other responses.
