Default Male or female? Help!!

I've had my budgie for a few months niw and its cere is still pretty pinkish so I'm not sure its sex. He/she went crazy when I played a recording of a female budgies mating call so I'm confused. Here's a pic. Its the yellow one hanging. The other 2 are boys for sure

Hi! to Talk Budgies

The best pictures for determining gender are those taken in natural light (no flash/no direct sunlight).
The picture should be a full-sized, clear and in-focus, close-up of the cere.

When you upload pictures as attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape. Additionally, the picture appears as what we term a “thumbnail” attachment.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:
Test Forum

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

Beautiful boys you have . Some males will show a good amount of white around the nostrils, but not like a female. The pink color in the pic says male regardless of any white.

Yes, he's definitely a boy. Still has pink but you can see purple coming through so it will be blue
