Hummingbird ID help

Recommended Posts

Photos taken yesterday south of Houston Texas. First bird (3 photos) seems to have white feathers on the head? Second bird (2 photos) body seems really elongated for Ruby Throated? Any thoughts on IDs? Thank you!

The first bird is likely a Ruby-throated but the pics are so dark I can't be sure what exactly it is. The white/light color on the crown is most likely pollen. The second bird is a Ruby-throated defined by the narrower and less broad/clubbed shape outer primaries (P8-P10) seen in the last photo.
