1st round: 8 Apr 2012 8 acc, 1 not
2nd round: 15 May 2012 9 acc
Completed: 8 Jul 2012 Accepted


Summary:  Because the description didn't mention a white patch at the base of the primaries, there was some doubt in the first round, but the rest of the description eliminated all other species from this distinctive male bird, for a unanimous result in the second round.
