Posted this bird(different shot) on FB and was asked if this is a female ruby-throat? The last part I know, but not sure of the sex. The dotting/streaks on throat area which I go by to determine a young male are so faint, I am not sure. Taken mid-September in central Illinois.

I think those little spots on the throat turn into the red "scales" on maturity. Females have no spots, so far as I know.

I'm no expert but because of the rufous color on the body below the wings my guess would be an immature male Rufous. :-)

Ah, staying out of the sex thing, huh?:lol: It's purple or blue salvia. Works very well for the hummingbirds here.
