After seeing one bird alone for a few days, we came across a pair together in a tree. The male has more red and black on the head, and is generally a little darker.
The female looks similar to the male, but with less red and black on the head.

After dancing around on the branch for a few moments, we got to observe the actual mating of this pair.
