3cy heuglini: January

Second winter plumage heuglini normally show a variable number of slate grey feathers in the scapulars, and this should normally be an easy first clue to separate it from almost blackish nominate fuscus. If you have images of this plumage, we very much like to see them and place them in this page.

Your images here? Do you have heuglini in this plumage?
