    If it were birchen it would only have white in the neck and a little lacing in the breast.

    That would be the color of a hen, Birchen males still have silver in the wing bow and saddle feathers.

    Silver Duck-Wing is Black Breasted Red with Silver added.
    Birchen is Brown Red with Silver added.
