Hummingbird ID?

Hi All,
Apparently, one hummingbird has decided to remain here in our yard for the winter. Fortunately, being Z8, she should be ok. We have had snow and ice, but it rarely ever dips below 20F.

I'll need to move my Correa closer to the house to take a better picture next time, but this is the best I can do at 12X zoom and cropping.

And cropped totally.

My best guess is a Black Chinned HB. Any other guesses?

RE: Hummingbird ID?

I have two hummingbird calendars and both show one called Anna's Hummingbird (Calypte Anna) that looks exactly like yours.

I also just read an article about how many hummingbirds are staying on the east coast through winter which was so surprising but interesting.
