    Picture is a bit blurry though so I can't see very clearly. It may be and I just can't tell from that pic. Maybe someone else can tell better than I.

    I really don't think so - not speckled right and doesn't look "heavy" enough either. Pretty bird though.

    Nope.

    Cant' rule out it's a cross with one; but definitely not a SS.
