Thanks for linking me... Well, if back of the head color is it... This is a girl and I've got 3 boys! Uh oh lol... I figured I had three girls since they all have a brown patch in the back of their head, but its nothing like yours!

There's clearly enough brown behind it's head (right below it's plume).  I'm leaning towards that direction as well that it's a female.

Thanks Ntsees and Chrishw! I agree with both of you. After it feathered out completely it became clearer to spot the difference.
