Allen’s Hummingbird


(Selasphorus sasin)

Allen’s Hummingbird and Rufous Hummingbird males both sport an orange gorget and are nearly identical, but their ranges differ considerably. While Allen’s breeds along the California coast and just into Oregon, Rufous’s range begins in Oregon and extends all the way into Alaska.
