Rufous Hummingbird

It's a little late in the season but I got a lucky break this past weekend and found the over-wintering Rufous Hummingbird at Castellow Hammock Park in Miami-Dade.  There has been some speculation that this could be an Allen's Hummingbird but for my BirdaDay purposes I IDed as a Rufous.  I think it would be a tough call to go with Allen's and Rufous is much more likely but anything could happen.  I think this one will remain a mystery.
