  1. Thank you all who took the time to look at my photos and give me your opinions. I go on a lot of guided birdwalks, but I find that I really learn when I go out on my own and struggle with my own identification. We may not be positive as to whether this is an Allen's or a Rufous, but I learned more from all of your comments than I'd ever learn from a birdwalk where someone else told me what it was while I took a glance at it. I especially appreciate this community while I'm isolating and pretty much cut off from family and friends. Again, thank you so much!
  2. If I don't know west from east, I'll never figure out a hummingbird's tail. Why did I say 'west of LA'? That would be somewhere in the Pacific. I'm an hour east, but that still leaves me the same problem. I appreciate your input.
  3. Thank you. He has returned several times. I'll study pictures of the tails and try and get a better look.
  4. This hummer was at my backyard feeder in Redlands, California (1 hour west of LA) several times this morning, April 8. I usually get Anna's but am very poor at identifying hummers. This one looks like an Allen's to me. What do real birders think?
