With most species the only real way to tell is through DNA, luckily you can get a DNA test done for about $20 or so.

Re: How do parrots tell the difference between male and female parrots??

I just realized I read your post wrong, I thought it said, how to tell the difference, not how do parrots tell the difference. Sorry about that. I'm sure they take a lot of things into consideration, calls, feather colors, pheromones and smell.

Thats a good question, if we find the answer we don't have to use dna test

My money is on UV colors that they see quite readily that we are entirely blind to.

Re: How do parrots tell the difference between male and female parrots??

I just spent the entire day sniffing Guavo and starring at him through my UV frames. Now I'm seeing spots and can't stop sneezing, but I still don't know the sex of my parrot.

Re: How do parrots tell the difference between male and female parrots??

Interesting question, as parrots aren't supposed to have a very good sense of smell, which I guess is how most animals tell. But parrots can tell male and female humans apart it seems. I'd say their fantastic eyesight and intelligence helps them notice extremely miniscule details that we might not notice.
