This Calliope female appeared early Dec. 12 in extra cold wet conditions and we rushed fresh juice to the feeders.  Dec. 17 was the first sunny day and she was much more active, giving us most of the Dec. photos.  Missing 12/18-20, here 12/21, then missing a week, but back 12/29, staying to 3/23/2014, two days after the first Black-chins came in.   LATER by 3 wk., a single hour sighting with pics at 5pm Apr. 12.  On Jan. 18-19 we also had a Rufous.  There were TWO Calliopes photographed Jan. 19 and Jan. 22 but the second was not seen again.
