It is a Broad-tailed Hummingbird.

The buff-colored wings is probably the sun combined with wing blur.

Thank you, That’s what I thought at first but didn’t see buffy flanks. TY very much.

Thank you all for your help. @AlexHenry, during migration, they comedown to our elevation too. Thank you for the tip about pinal peak. Plan to get up there one of these days.

Lower elevations good for Gray Vireo, Juniper Titmouse, Crissal Thrasher, Scott’s and Hooded Orioles. Higher elevations good for Mountain Chickadee, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Virginia’s Warbler, Grace’s Warbler, Western and Hepatic Tanagers. I saw a Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher up there once. Also Short-tailed Hawk has been seen occasionally up there but I never got lucky. 

If you go I suggest getting lunch at Drift Inn in Globe. Great green chile burger and beer.
