Grand Canyon hummingbird, August 2017

Hi - moving this one over from another forum as suggested; tThis was at Grand Canyon Village, so close to the main tourist bit, if that helps at all...

Suggestions are black-chinned or broad-tailed...I did not see any males around.

Cheers in advance!

Hi in vitrio,
I think the picture shows a Broad-tailed hummingbird adult female. A Black-chinned hummingbird wouldn't have the orange side patches also the Black-chinned hummingbird doesn't have as much white on its underside.
