I think the breast and belly of the bird are largely in shadow, with only the hindmost part of it lit by sunlight. I therefore think all the underparts are pale, and the dark colour is an...

The first looks a better fit for Buff-tailed Coronet to me. The tail is in the shadow and so doesn't look as pale as one might expect. But the bill shape, the white `boots' and the colour of the...
