Answer to Photo Quiz 2: Fast wing beat, long bill, and small size make this a hummingbird. Drab appearance make it immature or female.  This bird’s long, thin body shape rules out Anna’s and Calliope. Costa’s are on the stockier side as well.  Note that Broad-billeds have flesh-color at the base of the mandible.  Broad-tailed sports more cinnamon on the sides. This bird has more dingy color below, lighter green upper sides, and a slightly longer and more decurved bill than Ruby-throat. This, combined with the plain cheek and dull cap, suggests BLACK-CHINNED HUMMINGBIRD.
