1cy female, November. A tricky bird, at first glance looking to have a quite homogeneous tail. At close examination, however, R7 on the left-hand side and R6 on the right-hand side are discernably narrower, and the internal pattern is typical for juvenile RR and slightly browner. The two outermost RR (both sides) are also retained juvenile feathers (compare adjacent post-juvenile RR) as they follow the same pattern, although unusually broadly pale-tipped. [90A88773]
