Michael and Anthony (and any other observers),
Assuming I saw the same bird first seen by Mike last week, I wanted to find out and confirm your observations.
Anthony wrote yesterday that he believed the bird to be an adult.
I think that lighting was much better during his viewing than mine (overcast today), plus the view from 250+ yds, but despite the appearance of zero mottling, the bill -- 1/2 to 1/3 of it --appeared dark toward the tip.
This would indicate a 3rd year bird.
Just curious about your observations and how, specifically, Anthony decided on 'adult' id.
