If you are lucky enough to see a Calliope Hummingbird in Glacier National Park, take note of its vibrant gorget. A gorget is a patch of colored feathers found on the throat of male hummingbirds. Gorgets are typically iridescent. and the Calliope sports a beautiful fuchsia patch that can be seen even when he is flitting about the park. This artwork and pattern was produced as Artist-in-Residence at Glacier National Park.
