It is in Rick Vetter’s notes:

>> The white plumage appears almost identical on both, down to the mottled gray smokey smudges on wings, primaries and secondaries just different areas in some cases. Leg and foot color, very similar, a mottled yellow green color but at times in different areas. Bill color is different, yellow vs a bone pale flesh color with small black <x-apple-data-detectors://16> tip. Bill length seems slightly longer on bird to right. And this bird appeared slightly larger in body size. In the photo it was about 12 inches closer than bird on left.
