Rufous vs Allen's Hummingbird in San Francisco

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was recently in San Francisco and learned little orange and green hummingbirds aren't a slam-dunk there. I managed to get a photo of this female (?)'s fanned tail. It's still not 100% completely clear, but I *think* I see a notched R2 feather, leaning me towards Rufous. Is it safe to call it in this case? Or should I leave it as Rufous/Allen's? Thanks for any tips!

Seen at Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA, Aug 9.
