Author's notes

I think it is a young one. There is a family of them hanging around. This one is a little tamer than the others.

It can't be all that young. We had them breed close by and hang round near the house a few years ago and when very young they were brown and white, not grey. But the hood is a little blacker in some of our photos, in adults.
