These two photos were the only two taken the third day, and none earlier, while we worked with binoculars for good looks at the bill and I actually got a good look at the spread tail from the back.    Johnsgard.  Hummingbirds of North America. was a big help, both editions.  It was easy to pick the bill out of a lineup.  Spread tails were found in the 6th ed. National Geographic guide by Dunn and Alderfer.
