The male has head to breast black, and thin but noticeable white crescent below eye; upper­parts, including upperwing and tail, black, bases of primaries white (forming bold white patch on folded wing); black of breast stops abruptly and neatly, rest of underparts to undertail-coverts white, some black extending down flanks; wing-linings white, sometimes showing as white stripe at bend of wing; iris dark brown; bill entirely blue-grey; legs blackish. The female is nondescript, warm buffy brown on crown and upperparts, wings and tail also buff-brown like upperparts; below, throat and breast a similar warm buff-brown, hardly contrasting with face, this colour extending to flanks and contrasting with paler buff belly and vent; crissum darker than belly, similar to flanks; bill and legs blackish. Juveniles resemble the female; immature male variable, some brownish like female (but sing, and are territorial), others intermediate between brown plumage and black-and-white plumage of adult male.

DNA Testing

If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic,' which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $99 per bird to be tested. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, just make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. Please note that if no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info.
