This is the first New Hampshire state record for the species and a rare vagrant to the Northeast. Within the past couple weeks there have been other reports of single birds from Massachusetts and New Jersey. The Calliope Hummingbird is North America's smallest breeding bird. Its breeding range is montane habitats of the Rocky Mountains and west; winter range is southwestern Mexico. How long the Tremblays bird will remain is anyone's guess, but the longer it hangs around, its odds of survival diminish. Hopefully it will resume migrating to much more southern climes.
Many thanks to our hosts, Pam and Paul, for their generosity and patience by granting so many birders the rare opportunity of seeing this little gem.
