Observation details

I think it is a juvenile female, but I'm not sure of the age. It was brown on the wings and back. The wings were long, the tail was short. The white patch at the base of the tail could be seen from the rear while it was perched on a post, eating what appeared to be a large snail. The face was lighter than the body, the bill was dark and slender, and the feet were yellow-orange. The eyes were red.
