Unusual context, but the back shot makes the wings look way long. The dull/cool gray auricular patch fully outlined in white. I want to call it a Costa's. I saw a similar bird at 13th and Fall in Newport on Nov 11. Bet it's still there. Someone put a feeder up in the vacant lot. There are seemingly 1000s of Anna"s Hummingbirds on the Oregon coast in winter. Sifting through them reminds me of looking for cowbird in a winter blackbird flock.
