Been watching a buff sided female hummer since Tuesday morning but only had real breif looks at it. This morning finally caught it in full motion and color with binochulars. Throat was spotted which went around to side of head and up to eyes, no redish spots on throat. Tail clearly large unlike a Rufous or Calliope, only small rufous spots at base of outer tail feathers. When perched the tail was clearly longer than the folded wings. Also had my FOS Blackchinned Hummer. Easy ID as it was a male.
