It's difficult to tell adult females from juvenile females. Beak length may be a clue if you have another one to compare with. Juvenile males haves some brown streaking and maybe a dot of red on their throats. Adult females and all juveniles have white on the tail. Late in the season it is harder to tell them apart.

Here are some photos. You can try to guess which age and gender they are for fun.
Male or Female? Adult or Juvenile? Field Markings of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds
