Fig 1) This bird is said to be very typical for vegae (Jon R. King pers. comm.), though the tertials are perhaps more boldly patterned than most. Photo from Japan, February.
|Fig 3) Note the crisp patterning on the mantle and coverts also the flat-headed appearance. January 3, 1998. Choshi, Chiba Province, Honshu, Japan. Photo courtesy of Angus Wilson.|
