Subject: [MASSBIRD] Western Kingbird Continues at Gloucester, 11/7
I've seen no other reports for yesterday.

Details, photos at .

From a couple of my photos, I see that the bird has mixed-age lesser coverts. Using Pyle's guide for aging, I couldn't come to any clear conclusion on the bird's age. Maybe excellent photos by Sean Williams give insight to age/sex of bird - I don't recall if Sean had any conclusion to this in his report. Pyle generally says that kingbirds have "eccentric" molt, making aging based on plumage complicated.
