New Guy?

Mary Anne caught some video of a bird in the box this morning. At first I thought it was Mom, but something seemed different. I cropped an image from it and also took an image from a June 20 video of Mom. I think these are two different birds. I pasted video below as well. Any opinions?

  2. I think you are right. Yes check out the sideburns on the top bird- all black, then look at the same sideburns on the next pic, there is a totally different look. Also the top Bird is thinner.Great pics you two.

  4. I don't see any leg band. All the prior kids have been banded.

  5. This is not the mother of Solo. Could it be the mother's new friend?
