Travis County, Texas Female Hummingbirds (1 Viewer)

Can anyone ID what species of hummingbird(s) this/these are? I'm not sure if this is the same female or two different females. Sorry for the poor photos. I'm not a photographer. Edited to add--the dark looking spot on the glass isn't mold. That particular feeder was just hung moments before I took the picture. I think it's shadowing from water on the outside of the glass on the opposite side.

Welcome to the Forum, Becky. Your bird is a female hummingbird, I think either a Black-chinned or a Ruby-throated Hummingbird. But I am far from sure.
