Blue Crown Hanging Parrot

Is been almost a year trying to look for nestling of Blue Crown Hanging Parrot (Loriculus galgulus) without success. However, I managed to spot a juvenile feeding at Botanic Garden!!

No actual nest spotted, there is a 50/50 chance that they are breeding in Singapore as no one can be sure that this juvenile is not another escapee.

Coppersmith Barbet Courtship Feeding

Is the season of love again for birds in Singapore so as this pair of Coppersmith Barbet. Barbet looks the same both male & female and is not possible to differentiate them just by their appearance.
I'm not sure even with these series of photos, the male is the one on the right. I can only assume that the male will feed the female during courtship.
Can you tell the difference between this 2 barbet? Which one is male and which one is female?
