Thanks
With species confirmed and a review of the species page, I see what you need for gender determination. I was able to retrieve an open wing shot from my recycle bin and I believe it is a male. Had not been going to keep the shot due to the damaged wing but forgot it would probably be needed for gender. So added not and will mark it male, please correct me if I'm wrong.

 
Yes, a male
