Re: Is this signs of the ring developing?

Hi, no that is what is called a shadow ring. Both sexes get them as youngsters. It doesn't give you any information on gender. That is definitely a young bird too.

You'll have to wait I'm afraid! 18 months is a little early for a ring, but some males will get it then. It will probably appear as a few jet black feathers around the lower beak and then just keep coming!
