Italian term or phrase: individui in livrea
Here we are speaking of the Golden Eagle:

Context:

Descrizione
Indicatore quantitativo che descrive la frequenza percentuale di individui in livrea non adulta all’interno delle coppie della popolazione di aquila reale presente nel sito.

Here I have absolutely no idea what "in livrea" means :( At a guess, does the term refer to "nestlings"?
As always, really appreciate your help.

agree  Anthony Green: yes, Eagles often live in loose family groups, and don't breed until they're around four, so when you monitor them you need to record the different plumages, as there will be two adults plus various juveniles which may be getting on a bit
