|An inexplicable encounter, where this bird allowed very close observations.
The close up of the face shows the black eyelid-rims, dark brown iris and reddish base of the lower mandible (Wells 2007).
Note the broad and uniform eye ring, said to be “primrose-yellow” (Wells 2007).
Note the continuation of the mouth margin with a raised, but separate section of the eye ring.
Close-up and in bright light the yellow ear-covert patch blends in with the yellow of upper breast and yellow-olive of the throat and head.
