Allen's Hummingbird

Allen Hummingbird, male

Allen Hummingbirds can be seen only as they migrate through the Kaweah Oaks Preserve during the spring and late summer. They can be distinguished from Anna's by their reddish-brown sides and back (Anna's being green); and their gorget is a 'rusty' red rather than the Anna's brilliant ruby-red head. It's difficult to tell the difference.
