Observation details

Single possible juvenile seen. Bird did not have bold markings on head or upper body and did not seem to have yellow on the face, or very pale at most. Possibly aricola subspecies. Bird was flighty at first but allowed close approach after approximately 5 minutes observation. Gave a two note flight call when flushed on 3 occasions. The bird was wet and looked drab and forlorn.
