Well, except behavior of Arthur's bird makes one think male, not female, although in both species the basic plumaged male is nearly identical to the female. In any case, going back to the wings, the Scarlet's is much darker, and more in contrast to the rest of the body, as can be seen in your two examples. I don't see as much contrast Arthur's pic between wing and body (but there is some, isn't there?), but again that could be because of distortion and light.
