Rufous Hummingbird? Also, how do you age/sex?

Seen today in Alameda County CA

Looks good for rufous hummingbird. As far as sex and age, I think it’s an adult female, but it could possibly be an immature male. Adult males have bright orange iridescent throat feathers, so this one isn’t an adult male.

Actually I think it might be an immature male. It has too much orange above its tail to be a female, and it looks like it has some throat feathers coming in.
