    Coming in late on this one, my comp was down, but I have to agree
    here, whistling doesn't make it a male. I have a 6 year old female
    whiteface pearl that can whistle 5 different songs and speaks 8
    words. And yes, I'm sure Cattie is indeed a she because she is
    alone in her cage laying eggs on the floor regularly. I also have
    a 5 year old female normal gray in another cage who also whistles,
    though not as fluently as Cattie does, and she, 'Kippy', says hello
    and pretty bird. She also lays eggs, but not quite as often as
    Cattie does. -Alison-
