Hello, Rufous
Rufous Hummingbirds wander east more than any other western hummingbird, often surprising eastern observers. How can you tell a Rufous from a Rubythroat, or males from females? See:

"Watching about 20 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds and Rufous showed up. I believe I saw a few females but not certain."
