OK, I'll give. Looked at it first on my phone. The head appears too
rounded for a MAMU, which usually appears to have a very flat forehead;
and. the body proportionately too long and the bill a little too thick. On
these intermediate plumages, the overall shape can be more useful than the
feathering.
