beside the overgrown and aberrant yellow bill this bird strikes as being overall strong marked. especially the tail is unusually strong patterned: tail band is much broader than usually in mich, bases of rectrices and uppertail coverts are strongly marked.
this bird has already shed its inner priamries: in the left wing p1 is missing, in the right wing p1 and p2.
orbital ring is reddish!
