Allen's Hummingbird - Selasphorus sasin Lance A. M. Benner 2021-03-05 East Loma Alta Drive, Altadena, Los Angeles County, California, Los Angeles (United States) (460 m) uncertain -

Sound made in flight in a suburban neighborhood. Recorded at a range of 10 - 15 minutes through thick bushes, which prevented me from seeing the bird.

Equipment: Sony PCM-M10 and a Sennheiser ME67. Edits: Trimmed at both ends; several seconds of loud noise from a passing car removed with the temporal gap duration preserved; and normalized to -3 dB.

The sound from the bird did not occur during the time when car noise was removed.

Allen's Hummingbird - Selasphorus sasin Thomas G. Graves 1997-06-09 Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo, California, San Luis Obispo (United States) (10 m) song -

I'm thinking Allen's or Rufous. Can anyone tell the difference between an Allen's and a Rufous Hummingbird? On Xeno for Rufous: XC27727. And Allen's on Xeno: XC17835 . My Stokes CD has no 'song' for Allen's, and the Rufous is rather static-y.
