CLOSED: Hummer ID

Rockport, TX(Zone 9a)

Any chance this is something other than a Ruby-throated? I've been seeing it the last few days and finally got a few pics. It's very skiddish. I got a couple pics where it's perched on the feeder, but it only stays there a few seconds.

Pic 4 - I think the red color is just a reflection from the feeder.

This was going to be my last pic but it flew in again and I got a few more shots. I don't think they'll be much better, but if they are, I'll post some more in a bit.

I wondered b/c I thought it was late for Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, but I've gotten a few more pics and it looks like something is wrong with at least one of its eyes. That must be why it is still here. Thanks for checking it!

Here's another pic that shows the eye problem.
