Does Hooded Tinamou not normally show a clear white throat?

I went back through my video footage and I think this is just a bit of a messy individual. The video is of the same bird and it never really faces the camera to properly show the throat. There's not really any alternative species at Fundo Alta Nieva, and this pic on their Facebook page is a much better individual than mine:
