The Calliupe Hummingbird


This very tiny little hummer is the smallest of the Hummingbirds and is not a local and is not seen around here as it enjoys a much higher altitude than the ridges around here...The Calliupe Hummingbirds have been seen as high up as 11,000 feet usually foraging around 5ft off the ground...These are very small even for a Hummingbird...The Hummingbirds of Shell Ridge look like Eagles next to the Calliupe... click HERE for more on the Calliupe Hummingbirds....

Your statement is highly questionable. You can hardly see a plane at eleven thousand feet. How in the world are you going to be able to spot a tiny humming bird? Besides, what would it be doing up that high anyway, searching for a sunflower?

I think anony mouse thought you meant these birds are just flying up from sea level to 11,000ft, which is pretty funny.
