Photos of the NY bird clearly show the black outer rectrices of Willow
Ptarmigan. I can't make out that field mark in the photos I've seen
so far of the St.J bird - has anyone else been able to? There's one
little section in the video where I think I can maybe detect a glimpse
of black, but I just cannot be certain. Are there any other still
shots that haven't been posted? The bird's bill looks small to me,
too - smaller than I recall in Willows I've seen, but memory of such
things is too subjective, I know.
