I have 2 pics of hummingbirds for ID.    I have included the info I used to ID & would very much appreciate feedback & steps you go through to get to ID.  Thanks!

#1 ?Ruby Throat-- was taken in coastal Alabama in March 2018.  Although you can't see the red, I ID'd it as a Ruby Throat, due to location (other hummer species are only rarely seen here) & wings not extending past tail

#2 ?Black Chinned--Phoenix, AZ May 2017; long bill, wings tips same length as tail.

Both birds seem to have the white spot behind the eye.
