This is a female Scintillant Hummingbird. The spotted throat, orange underwing coverts, rufous tail, and stocky proportions all fit Scintillant, which can occasionally show this white flank spot.

Thanks for the correction.  Had kept a blurred image of the bill and believe you are correct.  All the best, H&K
