Males are easily identified by their ginger-brown slacks with blueish-grey eyes.

They also sport black, mustache-like marks that run between their eyes and down to their throats, with similar black streaks underneath their tails.

Although they are still quite like males but females are more distinct.

They’re much lighter and do not have any mustache marks or black streaks beneath their hoods. They also have darker beaks than males.
