A hummingbird just showed up at our feeder in North Boulder (Riverside Ave/ Redwood Ave). Not being familiar with fall hummers in the west I'd be grateful for assistance with identification. Photos follow below. Red-yellow spot on throat. Lacks extensive specklings on throat. Throat distinctly white compared to dusky-dirty chest. Bill very slightly decurved. No white eyeline, but white spot behind the eye. Grayish flanks (perhaps a suggestion of buff). White on outer ends of tail feathers. Immature male broad-tail?
