I like Pewee here. Structure does not look big enough for OS and there should be dark sides of the" vest" showing.

Birdbrain22,

With that being said about the vest being visible, would this be an olive-sided? Most of the photos I’ve seen show the vest being a little darker than you see in this photo.   This was taken the day before the other photo.....Just outside Susanville CA. 

Thanks !

The vest on an OSFL is really dark.  Also, in the first photo if it was OSFL one of the white flank spots at the base of the back would be showing.
