A 3cy (2S) michahellis, showing obvious yellow component in leg-colour, even at this age. Bill much as adult but dark mark near tip of upper mandible. Note also the rather long legs; the robust, deep and rather blunt-tipped bill; the clean, dark grey mantle and scapulars; the new dark grey median coverts but retained brownish lesser and greater coverts. Outer primaries still second generation,
