My cousin finally got a picture of the tail feathers of a hummingbird and I need confirmation on whether it is rufous or Allen’s. It is not the best picture but I believe the feathers can be seen clearly enough. Any help would be appreciated. D6556F74-1AF7-4EE0-B212-01540DA5AAAB.jpeg

This looks fine for Allen's with the unnochted tail feather. This is an adult male so it likely could be identified if you have a photo of the back, without going through the process of getting tail feather photos.
