Hi birders, sorry to have possibly sent this twice, but the first time
it bounced.

There was a Spotted Pardalote at my place this morning, very  
confiding and was perched only a couple of feet from me, so I saw it  
very clearly. It appeared to be a male, but I was a bit confused as  
the spots on it's crown were clearly yellow, while Slater's tells me  
that the male has white crown spots. The tail and throat were yellow,  
while the guide says that the female has a whitish throat. I don't  
have a camera so I can't post a picture. Can anyone help me out as to  
it's gender?
