28 July - Bird of Cut 50 was by road intersection; it had sparse mottlilng on breast, no visible white crown. Next bird to east (I believe this is actually to south) was more heavily mottled, therefore medium mottling.
Another bird further to east (south) was very heavily mottled, ~ like Guanare birds: black chest with white spots.
Another still further to east (south) had sparse mottling, like bird of Cut 50. NONE had visible white crown.
The white rumps of these birds are not as conspicuous as on the restricta birds seen.
From puddle area in middle outward (= to west (north)).
Just north of puddle found one bird, almost pure white, very little clouding (probably same bird as Cut 38). Cf. cut 53 for later recording possibly of this bird!
No bird found between there and bend in road (original parking place); last year at bend in road there had been a "subadult" male.
From bend in road outward (beyond marsh [illegible word] field) I found four birds, two of them sparse+, other two medium - in the breast mottling. One of these could be seen to be fairly heavily mottled but with the mottling masked by overlying white feathers (feather tips that would wear off?). These four birds were all in a stretch o f ~70 m. along the road.
The white rumps of these birds are not as conspicuous as on the restricta birds seen.
Bird seen at main crossroads appeared to have pure white underparts and no visible crown patch. Upon collection, it proved to have fair amount of mottling and concealed white bases to some feathers of crown.
