This is a different and better looking tristis bird than Tuesday despite having paler legs. It is whiter bellied and flanks, buffier upper chest,throat and face and lacking the lemon undertail coverts and yellow in supercilium. It also called with a flat pii typical of tristis.

There was no sign of Tuesdays presumed tristis.
