We came across this little guy in a canyon near our home.  He was resting quietly, guarding his territory.  If anything came near, off he flew to chase them away – only to return to his perch a few minutes later.

Cute little guy, but I have no idea as to the species of humming-bird.  That’s Bob’s department!

  1. Nice capture of your little friend, Steve 🙂


  2. It is hard to say, because these things are irredescent, and their colors change. I am no expert, but based on what I can see, the location, the pot-bellied shape, the straight beak, it looks like a Calliope Hummingbird. 🙂

    Thanks for asking. 🙂


  3. Thanks, Truels! Now, let’s see if we can figure out what it is. 🙂


  4. The expert has spoken! Thanks, Bob. I’ve been enjoying your recent trip pics!! Check out Bob’s blog.
