Observation details

A small 3 bird group flied fast in distance. Leading bird I identified as an adult male S. spectabilis. Looked very much like S. mollissima but head has clear blue and orange colors without a black cap. Two other birds I could not identify for sure but probably they were young birds of the same species.
