Contrast between head and other upperparts is interesting but it's hard to be sure from anything as pics are this bad - sorry :)

I saw the bird for a long time so if you have any questions ! what caught my eye was the dark head / lighter body (almost peach breast) no white over the black mask, it was what i could feel quite small... there was almost no white wing mark!!
