Yellow-fronted Canary

I happened upon a huge flock of these birds while walking around the Punchbowl (WWII vet cemetery) on my last day in Hawaii.  There were easily 250 of them and they were fairly obliging.

I presume this is a male, with bright yellow and dark black in the face.

Versus, this bird, which could be a female or a young male perhaps?

This photo shows the distinctive 'X' pattern you see on their faces if you get a look head on.

Eatin seeds eatin seeds eatin seeds.
