This photo was taken the day before the nestlings fledged.

Little Emmie’s Babies Fledging

These are Little Emmie’s babies from this year, I named them Jade & Juniper. Jade was fully fledged in this photo and getting ready to venture out of the nest. When I arrived the next day, she was gone and Jade was still preparing for her departure. She flew 2 days later.

Little Emmie Nesting 2016

I have had the pleasure of watching this Calliope Hummingbird nest here every season for 3 years. I gave her the name Little Emmie, for her beautiful emerald color.
