Hummingbird ID - Saskatchewan, Canada

Some help would be appreciated with a positive ID on this hummingbird. My Merlin app suggests a Rufous Hummingbird for all three photos and I tend to agree, but that would be a rarity for my location. Could this possibly just be an immature Ruby-throated Hummingbird?

Thanks!

Thanks for the help on the ID! I am a bit new to birding and am still a bit tentative on ID'ing some birds so the help is appreciated.
