Hummer ID

Rockport, TX(Zone 9a)

Got home about an hour before sunset to discover a new hummingbird at the feeder. Not at all sure what this is. Kind of hoping for a Calliope but I know that's a stretch. Can you tell anything from these photos? Once again, a cool bird has shown up when it's dark gray outside! Thanks for your help.

Not enough to go on at the moment, but pretty sure it isn't Calliope - there's a clear view of the central tail feathers in the last two pics, and they don't show the right shape for Calliope; the tail is also too long for Calliope.

If it hangs about, try to get some pics with the tail more fanned out.
