Hummingbird Identification

Hi there!

This is my first post, so please help set me straight if Iím doing this wrong

We spotted these two hummingbirds today and are looking for some help IDíing them. Growing up, we always assumed they were Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds. However, lately Iíve been reading that those are pretty rare in our area and the Broad-Tailed Hummingbird is more common. However these are very slender and do not seem to have the feathers of a Borad-Tailed.

These were spotted on our feeder in Black Forest, Colorado. Thanks for any help or pointers!
