A delicate precious gem in flight this is a male Calliope Hummingbird. Instead of a sheet of iridescent feathers this bird had a beautiful distinct pattern of magenta striped feathers along its neck and emerald green feathers along its back. Subtle shades of browns along the sides and a smooth white feathers along the bottom. By far one of the most remarkable birds to visit our home this spring. So remarkable he almost seems like he could be found in a fine jewelry store.
