Painted Buntings

I have been seeing some Female Painted Buntings show up the past several days. Not as colorful as the Mails but a pretty light Green. I was looking at one that I thought was a Female, but after close examination, I believe it is a “Young Male”? The bright colors seem to be coming out on the stomach/chest area and around parts of the head. Some adult Females and some young Males, I think?

This is what he will look like after a cool bath, when he is an adult.
