I can't help but wonder if this spills out beyond the hummingbirds. After reading the article, you might not be able to say with any certainty that a male looking bird is actually a male bird. I can see the responses in the ID forum in the near future changing from, 'That's a female type bird', to, 'That's a male type bird'.
