Observation details

A bird that has spurred a lot of discussion. As of now, it looks like this is most likely a female Kungwe, though the underside (with a yellowish wash leading to a grayish breast) doesn't quite match the only other known photos of a female of this species which show a white underside. Due to the yellow wash (potentially highlighted due to lighting/angle), characteristics of a juvenile, this is likely a near-adult female (which would make this the second known photographed female of this species). This could potentially be something new, but for now the signs are pointing towards Kungwe.
