seen yesterday in central NC, been at the feeder for about a month now

initially we figured it was a rufous since those are far more common here (though they are still considered rare), but after i got a pic of its tail, im thinking maybe not.

what are your thoughts?

Almost certainly Rufous. ALHUs and RUHUs are nearly inseparable other than getting good shots or views of the spread tail feathers. I can't tell which from this pic, but North Carolina is very unlikely for a ALHU, even a for a vagrant.
