Hello Stephen,

Thought you might like to see this one, an adult WBSW with dependent young at 
my place - Basin View NSW.

Shows the clear normal yellow eye colour of an east coast bird and a juvenile.

How to describe the colour in the juvenile is interesting - grey-green?

The point is that when discussing races/places and eye colour we should be 
careful to only deal with adults.

I believe that the eye colour of young birds changes gradually to yellow (in 
the east) but it may take more than a year.
