A female wouldn’t have black on the throat like that, this is a first spring male I believe.

Huh? Females can have the black chest, but have a white throat like this bird.

The black on this bird goes across the lower throat, unless I need to check back in my bird anatomy.

edit : I now see that females of this species can have black on the throat, I’m used to its western relatives where any bird with black on the throat is a male.
