Pintail Eclipse Changes

The Pintail is still with us and as I thought,  it is a male in eclipse.

The changes are quite obvious now and should be completed within weeks. Compare today's pics with a week ago - the breast is much whiter and more defined.

The head will get a darker brown and underside white, with the long pintail feather yet to grow out. Watch this space !
