Male Calliope was first to the feeder this morning. Then started getting buzzed by female Black-chinned, female Costa's, and immature or female Rufous. Calliope was id'd based on general, short dumpy (pot-bellied if you will) appearance, peach-colored blush on sides noticed in flight, and the tips of the primaries extended beyond the tail when it perched on the feeder. An interesting side note is that the male Costa's that had been around have left along with male Black-chinned. Also had a female Anna's last Sunday.
