Hi, I photographed this hummingbird at the Rainforest Discovery Center of Gamboa, but I'm not sure about the ID: any suggestion, please??

Female White-necked Jacobin possibly?

Suggest female sapphire-throated hummingbird, mostly because the wing tips fall far short of the tail. Not the jacobin as that has an all-dark beak. Blue-chested emerald/hummingbird ought to have some bluish throat feathers and wing tips approx. at tail tip
