Hallo Gerold, ja, es ist ein Weibchen D. atricapilla (grüne Augen)
Green eyes = female D. atricapilla

The plurae are not right for D. atricapilla. This would appear to be a very dark form of D. hyalipennis.

I agree with Chris, this is D. hyalipennis. Please compare posture, proportion and dusting with other D atricapilla which is more plump and black
