Looks like a juvenile, possibly a male. Males have a orangey brown striped breast feathers and females have grey and white ones.

Adult male

I cannot see any pale fringed feathers on the visible back or wings, so this looks like an adult male. The eye looks very bright, too...another sign of an adult bird.
