I would say 1, 2 and 4 (the bird facing right) are Elegant and 3, 6 and 7 are Royal

thanks! if that's correct, elegant is a lifer! Out of curiosity, how did you identify them?

The bird shown in pix 1 & 2 is the same individual on the same rock. It is readily ID’ed as an ELTE by the bill shape, including the more-obvious droop to the tip than shown by ROYT.

thanks, do you have any thoughts on the others?

The last photo is a great example of the differences between the species - Royal in front, Elegant in rear

Wait, the bird in front of birds 4 and  is elegant ,right?
