This is a Rufous Hummingbird, note the orange back. 

In answer to your question, Rufous and Allen's Hummingbirds have white like that. And if I'm not wrong, Anna's, Costa's, and Black-Chinned Hummingbirds also have white in the tails.

This is a Rufous/Allen’s, and given the location it’s likely an Allen’s. Immature and female birds of the two species don’t show entirely rufous backs. The tail spread photo is not good enough to ID to species IMO.

White tipped rectrices don’t rule out any regularly occurring female-plumaged hummingbirds in the ABA area except for Violet-crowned and Buff-bellied, I think.
