Comment:Unsure if this is adult female or immature bird. Brown eye, rules out Adult female, which has yellow eye.
Females generally have a yellow brown iris, flecks of yellow in iris or flecks of brown in yellowish iris depending on age and individual variation; juveniles have a brown iris giving the appearance of a dark eye. Female gape yellow in breeding season (shown here) and brown-eyed females noted as breeding. The typical black mark on throat of adult female is seen in this photograph. Juveniles have white shaft streaks on tertials, nape and hindneck; these areas cannot be clearly seen in this photo. The typical dark scalloping on the breast with fainter off-white belly plus comments above gives reasonable confidence for an adult female (GC).
Equipment:Canon EOS 7D Mark II + EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens @ 330mm. 1/200th F9, ISO 800. Processed in DPP4.5.20 + ON 1 Raw.
