Chuck tells me he saw that the flanks were grayish rather than reddish, which would suggest the small hummer was a Costa's.

About 3 this afternoon I was talking with Chuck Philo at the end of his driveway, when a very small female hummingbird with no rufous in the tail fed briefly on some flowers before flying away. We had good looks at it from the back, but only the briefest of looks at its underparts. Judging from size alone I would have called it a Calliope.
