  1. A = brown, B = grey, C = grey-headed brown, D = grey-headed brown nape, E = Mauritius grey, U = uncertain. The latter category includes individuals with mixed brown and grey plumage, representing either juvenal plumage or potential inter-morph hybrids. See Fig. 1 for depictions of plumage morphs.
