Thanks for the photos Gee. The stripe does appear to be thicker like the picture you have for the female

Here is one for you Gee if you don't mind.

I passed on your tip to a friend about the lines and she went to have a check on one of hers. But, it is a yellow winged pied with no line, is there a clear cut way in this mutation to tell?

Many thanks

How old is the bird?
Molted yet?

Because, according to this post:

http://kakariki.net/ftopic-1239-0-days0-orderasc-.html

That could mean it's male.

Another tip from Peter, somewhere here on this forum;

If he has not moulted yet.. but is at least 2 months old (after fledging)
You could measure its upperbeak.
For males it is above 1,5cm, females below.

Maybe you could combine those 2 tips?
