1cy female, October. A nice tail with all ten pairs of rectrices present. Most are post-juvenile, but two and one juvenile RR remain on the left- and right-hand side, respectively. On those, note different internal pattern compared to the rest, dark colour also being browner and pale edges less tawny. Juvenile R9 (to the left) is clearly narrower and more pointed compared to the post-juvenile R8, and shows typical notch at the tip. [90A88511]
