These pics were taken last week near Pocatello, Idaho by my sister. I need some help with identification, since the only ones we get here in NY are RT Hummers. Thanks!

I'd say Broad-tailed. . . not great with hummers, though.

ABA list: 443 Latest- Black Swift
Yearlist: 382 Latest- Black Swift
Yard List- 100!! latest: Olive-sided Flycatcher

I may live in San Diego County, but my home and heart will always be in Missouri.

I'm inclined to agree, especially with that last shot. :D

I'd agree, they all look like Broad-tailed.

Yaay! I tried to identify before reading the answers and I got Broad-tailed too! Just had to share my joy :) Beautiful pics btw
