Have a look thru a few other threads on the subject and in the gallery.
Is there a clear strip under the wing? or one that is rather faded.
If well defined female.
We dont have mutations in NZ so not sure how well the stripe comes out on them.
Make use of the "Quick Search" block on the left

Cheers
Steps
PS if intending to breed... read up on that....and also read up on diet a thread "what do you feed...."

Im pretty sure its a male....
Had 2 instance out of over 1200 kakariki we have had larger female, mistaken for a male ... but never managed to breed off them when they have hooked up with a good male.

Another way to tell is if the head is sort of flat or round.. this is with most parrot species. Bu unless .. espec in kakariki, you have several others to compare directly with is hard to tell
