Eastern Lesser Whitethroat id


This Lesser Whitethroat was photographed in Gothenburg, Sweden a couple of days ago.

Seems like one of the Eastern races, anyone who has an opionon from this photo:

Observers have noted that it gives a long-tailed impression in the field.

Is there anyway of telling the race without DNA?
