    Woo Jan I love these pictures!!! My call is a female rufous, due to the more coastal range of Allen’s showed in Sibley’s, and the fact that the outer tail coverts do not appear “lanceolate”. But on the other hand the eyebrow appears orangeish (as described in Sibley’s for Allen’s) and she is almost the spitting image of the female Allen’s in my iBird app….. I can’t tell from the pictures as to whether the next-to-central tail feather is “lanceolate” (Allen’s) or “slightly notched” (rufous). Will be interested to hear what others have to say….!!!?

      I almost went Rufus also however the white collar gave it the edge to Allen’s. I know of Allen’s on the eastern Sierra down at Mammoth. So I am still sticking to Allen’s!
