Allen’s Hummingbird

Allen's Hummingbird

10 January 2010. Nehoiden St., Harwichport. Photo by Jeremiah Trimble.

Massachusetts has a surprisingly high number of accepted Allen’s Hummingbirds, which makes it doubly important that any selasphorus hummingbird be banded and measured if possible–even superb photos don’t always do the trick in separating Allen’s from the more regular Rufous. There are multiple other records scattered across the east, but the Commonwealth stands out for its volume.
