maybe the same bird as in pics 1395-97, this time with closed bill.
it got to be a younger adult (5cy or 6cy): males tend to show more white in wingtip/larger mirrors generally and this bird has a p10 subterminal mark, rel. short ventral p10 tongue, p4 marks and even a small black dot on one of the primary coverts.
