Selasphorus rufus.  The bill of a Rufous looks really long when the tongue protrudes.  The pale collar and strong cinnamon in the breast and belly are good for Rufous as is the tail longer than the wings.   This bird was last photographed Nov. 28 and was thought to be the one present through December but a photo in early Jan. showed a Calliope!  Nov. 24 both this bird and a Calliope arrived and we thought it ran off the Calliope.
