Non-breeding Dunlins

Recommended Posts

The birds are wearing feathers from two different generations of plumage, the smooth, fresh gray basic feathering and worn, faded bits of either first basic plumage (= juvenile plumage) or alternate plumage, I'm not really sure which. I'd like to know if someone has a good clue about this.

Juvenile DUNL

Alternate-plumaged DUNL
