    Where is it? Falklands? Or somewhere else?

    Good challenge.

    Guess if it's on the Falklands it must be Dark-faced Ground-tyrant. It looks pretty good for a ground-tyrant overall, but the tertial fringes look a bit too buffy for dark-faced. Maybe it's a young bird.

    Any info on location?

    That does rather assume they are normal-coloured, unlike the rest of the bird . . .

    Guess the other possibility is an escaped cagebird.

    but does albino explain the yellow colouring?

    I've changed my mind, it might be black redstart. Unless of course it was taken in the Falklands
