    Silver pied are mostly white so they can be harder to sex earlier and no 2 are alike. Post some recent pics.

    That looks like a Black shoulder male. Not a silver pied.

    For comparison, this is my SP male as a chick

    Do the BS males have the white underneath like the OP's pic, or is that one a pied (though not SP)?
