Long-tailed hummingbird in Texas?

Submitted by ellwaters on Sun, 07/01/2018 - 00:21
I saw a hummingbird today in the hill country of Texas that had two long tail feathers, about the same length as its body. The only one I can find on the internet that looks like it is the booted racket-tail hummingbird, but the information says it isn't found north of Venezuela. Is there any chance that is the bird I saw, or does anyone know of another species of hummingbird that would be in central Texas?

Around my grandmothers house I have seen many beautiful birds.

I have seen and heard the Mourning Dove and their beautiful song, and a neighbor has a regular nesting couple, and some dud eggs along with prayer.

I have seen Anna's hummingbird, which is very similar to the Ruby-Throated hummingbird, only a little more magenta with some of the beautiful plumage on their head as well.
