This hummingbird was identified as an Allen’s via eBird reviewers in a yard in western Austin, Texas this winter. It is a young male that has just gotten its brilliant red gorget feathers in. I was lucky to photograph it on February 6.

Allen’s is a coastal California species that occurs rarely in Texas in winter.
