I like guessing the sex of birds that I haven't seen before.

Thank you for putting the "answer" in the desc.

seriously!? I only got to see him briefly cause they were closing the bird house down for the day. I was using my dads crappy camera and had kind of just pointed and shot so when we were looking at the pics for the day I was so excited! :D
