A very young looking bird. Well I know it should (it's a juvenile) but I've never seen one looking like this before.
It is the joy of patch birding to come across something unusual or unexpected (not necessarily rare).
(For some reason it makes me think of Orville?)
Guess what I hoped this would be when I saw it in a distant field.

Three of the four birds present on my patch. My first for the year and the biggest surprise of the week!
