Paul - what odds for your money?

Look at the top of the primaries: the white hooks strongly suggest a white hind edge to the upper primaries meaning Roseate or White-fronted.

I don't do Roseates but the jizz is W-f to me, including the very white look and the "droop snoot" bill due to the curvature of the upper bill being far greater than that of the lower (except in the possible Common T second from right).
