More Mandarins.

Here are some more photos of the 10 Mandarin we caught. Baker is the I.D. guide that we use to age non passerines, but it does not include Mandarin. Anyone out there with ageing criteria we would like to hear from you. The females seemed to show a difference in colour, some being greyer and others more brown. Some individuals had more of a crest on the nape, which we thought might be adults.
