Looks like one but the tail is a bit odd and hard to see. Which I guess is why you're asking :)


Uncomfortably Numb.
Looks fine for 1st win Male Hooded. I think we’re seeing the underside of the tail & it’s a little tatty looking.

Thanks to all. The wind is blowing and messing up the plumage, but the distinctly long bill is unique to Hooded, I believe.
