this is not a rufous hummingbird, they are definitely brick orange and on the west coast in redwoods and north coniferous forests they willcome to so california in the winter.

i,m pretty sure this is a female or young ruby throated hummingbird as the green can appear bronze in some angles. it also is the only hummingbird that breeds in the east.

the photos are great!
