A female. "[T]he male has a bluish gray head, a prominent black collar on the nape and vinaceous-red mantle, back, wing-coverts and underparts. The flight feathers are black, the tail is grayish centrally and blackish on the sides, with the outermost pair of feathers having white edges. The undertail coverts are white, the bill is black or dark grayish and the legs and feet are purplish black or purplish red. The female looks quite different: she is drab brown where the male is vinaceous-red, and brownish gray on the head." -- http://www.birdingintaiwan.com/redcollar...
