    Difficult to tell the difference between adults and chicks here.

    You can easily tell by the white throat (=chick) or black throat (=adult). Also, adult Gentoos have distinct white head patch unlike chicks.

    The head patches in juveniles are fuzzy and not as clear as in adults, also, adults have long tail feathers. You'll get to see these little signs after a while 😃

    Thanks for the clarification. I figured it had to be something like that - I used the white patch on the head for I'd.
