Need a photo of the underside of a spread wing to be sure. If you see the cobalt blue on the underside of a parrotlets wing then they are usually male.

Thanks for the reply. The reason i wanted to make sure she is a female its because she constantly goes on top of the male. Is it normal to act like that ?
Yes it is, especially in young birds figuring things out.

Normally I would agree with Ozzie, but I'm going to have to disagree on this phone. I believe this bird is a heavy pied Blue Male. The color on the rump is much too dark to be a female in my opinion especially with this heavy of pied, but also on the wing there are darker shades of blue although patchy and on the underside I see a portion of feathers that also have a hint of that darker blue. All of those things make me inclined to say male pretty confidently, however if you are using a flash it could make things look different so a day light photo no help.
