P10 fully grown and all secondaries and rectrices are moulted to second generation. A few mantle feathers en scapulars are replaced for grayish adult-like (probably fourth generation) feathers also in the right wing the inner greater covert and some outer median coverts and in the left wing some median coverts. And the upper-tertials(left: tt2, right: tt1, tt2) are the most recent renewed tertials.
