I was like your young birder last weekend when I saw my first Splendid Wren.
I first took it for a female, but it was a male in non-breeding plumage. Of
course it was a formal tick for the species, but I still don't feel that I
have seen a real Splendid Wren. Similarly, it would have been unsatisfying
to see a single female Turk. I avoided that disappointment by employing the
greater one of seeing no Turks at all. Such is birding!
