Adult Female
Two clues suggest this bird is likely an adult female. First the Tail: White-tipped feathers tell us this one is a female or a juvenile (male or female). Second the Time of Year: Because the photo was taken in early summer, before the young nestlings have fledged, we know it must be an adult female.
