2 birds with typical mich bills, large eyes, eye mudges and head striation, no p10 tongue --> these birds are michs, but: they both have a rather pale groundtone to underwing with a rel. filigrane pattern formed by narrow covert tips, similar to some 1cy caspian gulls. note especially pale axilliaries!
