Subject: First Selasphorus hummingbird this season
Not an adult male

Has large orange spot on gorget but need to get pics to determine if hatch
year make or a female

Most likely it is a rufous hummingbird but I need to confirm that part with
pics of retrices

It’s busy chasing the 11 ruby throated hummingbirds all over the yard
