Yes, that’s a male molting into breeding plumage.

LOL….I was being sarcastic actually. The black cap coming in is a dead give away. Can’t wait for the completed change!!!!! 🙂

James says:

I’ve got a dozen or so males at my feeders here in southern Maryland and they are almost in full breeding plumage now. They are strikingly beautiful.

I can see Lake Superior out my window & how far north I live, so everything is late for us. Even our lilacs don’t bloom till June! 😉
