Number: 2

First 2019 courtship display today for calliope hummingbirds. A female sat at the top of a 15 ft tree, while the male did his hovering at about 90 ft, then diving in an arc close to the female, with his tail feathers giving the characteristic "bzzzt" at the bottom of the dive. Repeated several times. See more at Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calliope_hummingbird#Courtship_display_and_sonation
