I appreciate the comment Liam, however Rufous-tailed Hummingbirds are only found in Tumbes, Peru. I am leaning towards a female Glittering-throated Emerald or even more likely, a female Blue-chinned Sapphire. Both are common in the Loreto region, but the photos do not show the undertail coverts which would allow a positive distinction between the two.
