Among hummers of regular occurrence in the US, only five have such obvious dusky centers to the under-tail coverts: Anna's, Costa's, Rivoli's, Ruby-throated, and Black-chinned. The bird is obviously not a Rivoli's. Ruby-throated can probably be ruled out on date and location. The bird does not give the long, lanky look of Black-chinned. The face looks not white enough for Costa's.

Do you agree with Anna's?
