2cy+ female, September. Sometimes two generations of feathers are present. Feathers from the older generation (R5, R7, R9-10 on the right-hand side) are bleached but still have typical adult shape and patterns, and they are not heavily worn. Note the extensive pale areas, some cutting through the feather almost horizontally, a pattern never observed in juveniles. Except for the dark end of the shaft, most rectrices are broadly tipped buff or buffish-white. Central RR are almost entirely blackish with only a narrow pale edge, a pattern more often present in juveniles, but seen in some adults too. [90A87350]
