All are males
longer beak
look under the wing foe a yellow stripe
If the strip is faded and broken.. male if a solid defined stripe female.

I was unsure about the first bird (pictures 1 & 2), he is smaller than the other kakariki and I thought the smaller bodied bird might have been a female. Thanks for your help!
