The colouring on the wing coverts and the general "jizz" of the bird make it look somewhat like a young bird.

Hi all,

a Crimson Chat was spotted in Parkwood yesterday morning by Peter Christian. It was seen again in the afternoon. See attached photo.
I would appreciate some expert advice on its age, as it has brown eyes. Does that mean it is a juvenile?
