the feature that is most often noticed that doesn't even require closely inspecting the beak margin is that the brightest of the background's sunlit snow is a bit gray...not the white of the falcon presumably illuminated by the same sun. AND...it is noticeable at normal viewing distance..
Thanks for your comments, Steve,
