» “As pointed out by Nik Borrow, this juvenile is so startlingly different than the adults and not “like the female” as described in BoA. However it then goes onto say that Chapin describes the 'fledgling' as being paler, pattern finer and less distinct without buff stripes on scapulars, upperparts spotted with black, feathers tipped rufous which more or less tallies with this bird.” June 2011
