An invasion year. We found three Elegants roosting on a spit with approx. 100 Caspians. They were 1/2 the bulk of the Caspians, with a faint pinkish bloom on the sides of the chest, on the belly and undertail coverts. Their mantle color was 1 shade darker than the Caspians with a dull dark bar on the middle coverts. The black folded primaries extended beyond the tips of the rectrices. The short black legs were approx. 1/2" shorter than the Caspians. They had a white nape, black hind crown extending around to the eyes, and white between the eye and the beak. They had pinkish-white underwings. The beaks were slightly longer than the Caspians and proportionally much slenderer with a more pronounced gonydeal angle. One birds beak was a strong orange with a yellow tip, one bird's beak was a little more reddish than gull yellow and the the third's beak was medium orange.
