I think even at this stage a properly presented case based on Johnson &
Johnson's actual measurement (compared to bill length) of primary projection
beyond the tail could get your case through so don't give up. Chris Corben
phoned me from Missouri this morning and we chatted for an hour! Apparently
this bird is being discussed on some ID forum in the USA with views
expressed both ways. He will send both you and I some of their comments.
Actually, I'd like to pass the ball and drop out and leave it to you to
pursue as I am busy with other things and I go away at the end of October.
But I do have some important emails to forward first. I do wish people would
hit 'Reply All'. One from Keith Brandwood is very interesting and contains
supportive data. I've been doing other things last couple of days.
