Sugar has a short tail

About three days ago Sugar dropped her last remaining long tail feather. Underneath she has a short tail. I have been meaning to take a photograph and have only just got round to it. Sugar’s tail has grown already.

Sugar’s tail is about half the length it will soon become. She is the last girl to come through the moult. Sugar, along with her flock mates, will be fully feathered for the winter.
