There were different types of birds there so it must be a different kind of hummingbird

First photo is hard to tell if it is related to the second bird.

This looks like a type of Mountain-gem. Maybe immature or I don't know if there is a non-breeding phase of a Purple-throated. Marking of the white stripe and dark seem to say Mountain-gem
