      It's an adult female Calliope Hummingbird. The tail isn't long enough for Broad-tailed, the feathers are too broad and rounded, and there's not enough rufous. See this montage of "female-plumaged" Broad-tailed tails, this comparison of female Rufous and Broad-tailed tails, and Plates 24 and 25 in A Field Guide to Hummingbirds of North America.
