Sexual dimorphism in birds

Recommended Posts

There is a fantastical variety of birds, and some species have notable differences between the males and females.  Post your best photos showing these differences.  Having both birds in the same photo is great, but not required.  I'll start.  Here's a male and a female Red-winged Blackbird:

Eastern Bluebirds having a mealworm feast in West Chester, PA yesterday.  Since they are partially hidden in the shot with both birds, I've attached a couple of pictures of singles.

Male and female Evening Grosbeaks with the 2 females in the middle. While I see them almost yearly when I travel up north, I don't think I have seen Evening Grosbeaks at my feeders since I took this photo back in 2012...until today when a single female showed up on our platform feeder for some sunflower seeds.
