Calliope Hummingbird at Zion National Park

At the request of Mr. Clifford C. Presnall, Park Naturalist, Zion National Park, Utah, I am recording the observation of a Calliope Hummingbird (Stellulu calliope) made by Mr. Stephens and myself, April 22, 1937. A bird of this species was seen several times on the mountain slope just back of the Museum. We noted its small size, greenish back, the white tips of the tail, and the bill black above and yellowish below. Mr. Presnall states that it migrates through that part of the country, since it has been seen at Bryce; but this is a new observation for Zion.
