Selasphorus Hummingbird (Selasphorus sp.)


Tijuana River OSP

Generally speaking, a Selasphorus hummingbird encountered from late March through April, and again from late September on, will most likely be a Rufous.  A Selasphorus encountered from late June to mid July will most likely be an Allen's.  A female-type any other time of year is pot luck...  This may change as the sedentarius race of Allen's appears to be colonizing southward!
