Lincoln's or juvenal Song?

Recommended Posts

Southern Ontario, Sept. 25.

Streaking looks a little heavy but it has a broad grey supercilium, eye-ring and buffy moustache stripe.

I've been trying to spot a Lincoln's for some time but quite elusive (not trying to influence anyone, honest).

Thanks.

Note that the spelling is "juvenile." In the past, ornithologists often differentiated between the plumage ("juvenal") and the bird ("juvenile"), but that distinction has, unfortunately IMO, gone by the wayside.

Much appreciated @Tony Leukering. I had thought that juvenal was the adjective and juvenile the noun, I stand corrected. Why not stick to these designations, I am very fond of tradition and will try to remember.

Thanks again.
