Hello tweets,

the most recent "demystified" mystery bird, thanks to my friend John del Rio who was vacationing in Hawai'i, was a Nene, Nesochen sandvicensis, as you all correctly identified;


this bird owes its existence to the successful cooperation between wildlife biologists and aviculturists.

today's mystery bird is courtesy of Rick Wright, and can be viewed here;


this bird is not too difficult to identify, however, Rick likes this image a lot because it shows the wing formula so well, so in this case, we are going to ask you to age and sex this bird as well as identify it.
