    My guess would be a female but I would catch it and get a good look or even a photo of the rear from the bottom if it has red feathers around the vent it is a male. You can try to vent sex by checking for foam but i would not suggest it if you haven't tried before or, I am not sure but, there might be a video on youtube. good luck.
