Hummingbird behavior and ID


Peggy
 

This morning a hummingbird was sitting in a bush performing this constant behavior that I had not seen before. Here is a short video if it will send. He is shaking his head back and forth for minutes on end. It is 53 degrees this morning so maybe he is just cold, but I have not seen them do this before.
Also, he is smaller than my Anna's so was not sure about the species, but did not see any ID marks, the gorget seems to lean orange vs fuschia, so maybe a young Allen's or Rufous?
Thanks for any enlightenment.
