    I had one very similar and marked them all as adults, markings and moulting hard to pick. Is that a boat in the background?

    when I see the white mark above the eye, I mark them as adults.

    Gotta admit that is very similar to what I thought so that is what I did!

    Good choices everyone! And that is a vessel in the background 😃

    Not only the head marking but also white X black throat feathers can help you to tell juveniles and adults apart! Black = adult (for Gentoo)

    Correct, @chloedelliott. The notes prior to yours include ways to tell adults from juveniles.
