    Sir Birdaholic Night Knight

    The only way I would be able to tell is, if it was mounting a female, or sitting on eggs during mid-day. Other than that.......???
    Name it a neutral name that's good for a boy or girl, like.... Byrd, Comet, Blue, Spirit, etc. Good luck. I know you'll come up with a good name.

    does it coo? cooing is what males do.... I was at petsmart in Jax and they have a pair- I got the male to coo back to me 5 of 6 times

    I also think the males have a bigger orange ring around the eye, which yours definitely has. Also, look for slightly bigger feet.

    Males have a thicker bumpier circle around the eye.This one looks like a male.Also looks like a white tailed,and maybe red factor.
    In N.H.,Tony.
