female Broad-billed? Don't see any red in the lower mandible but it can be very faint in young females.

I received a message that the original bird in this thread could be a female/immature Magnificent Hummingbird. Can anyone tell me the marks to make the determination. I'm attaching the next photo that was taken. Different bird but possible Magnificent.

Thanks for the input.

New one is a different bird, a young male. Note the purple(?) coming in on the throat. I'd go with Black-chinned, if that really is the actual gorget color. The 1st looks like a female Mag, with no red on the bill and that white stripe behind the eye.

Hi Falcon,

Thanks for the input! I knew this was a different bird. I did some research on the Black-chinned and agree. Love that bird ID is such a challenge and hope I keep getting better.
