Gorget color is more blue than the feeder is, but seems the proper red for Rufous.  Broad-tail is impossible because of the small tail-see other shots.  Calliope should have a different face, a shorter bill and tail, and a rounded tip to the central retrix visible in several shots.  Its gorget would be more lavender and show more lines, less of a patch.  Selasphorus rufus.
