Allen's Hummingbirds have narrower tail feathers than Rufous, especially R1-R3 (outer retrices)
Adult male Rufous Hummingbirds R2 has a notched tip or sometimes called "pinched" tip
which most adult females and juvenile males also show.

Dates of migration and placement on that date also helps with an Allen's vs Rufous
