Long-tail juv ID

check the pink rear 20% of the foot on this juvenile Long-tail plus the other ID features, uppertail covert and undertail covert barring, outer primary pattern, bill size, shape and pattern, central tail projection, fine mantle barring etc---and then enjoy a brilliant bird--many people could finally add this species over the top of the dodgy at sea, an expert says it is one, ticks on their lists!
You do need to click on all these to get the full impact
