Hey “Tiny”

Calliope_male_672314

Getting face-to-face with a male Calliope Hummingbird who we  affectionately call  “Tiny”.

As in…… hey, Tiny is here, when we see them perched in the trees or at the hummingbird feeders.

Calliopes are smallest bird around yet unmatched in energy, spunk and attitude and this guy was no exception especially.  Especially on attitude.

Named after Calliope the muse of eloquence and epic poetry “Tiny” is poetry indeed.
