I am wondering if the colouring under the wings is use by male Parrotlets to diplay in a courtship dance to the famales like the birds of paradise.

Is that how you tell the sex of a Parrotlet? does anyone know?

Pacific parrotlet males have blue on their faces and on their rumps that is usually not seen in females. I say usually, because I read on a forum of a gal who said she had a dna'd female with a blue rump. The color on the rump shows up when they first feather out as youngsters, so you can tell what sex the chicks are very young. The underwing color must be the same, but I've never looked at it. Now I'm going to have to gaze at Doug while he flies to see if I can notice it. He is a blue mutation, so it might be different.
