The pictures on this page show the typical differences of the eye cere in male and female Diamond Doves. These pictures are presented as an aid and as stated in my article; factors, such as being kept indoors, can affect what the cere may look like.

The above two birds are BLUE White Rumped Diamonds. Both birds are 8 months old. Note the "thickening" of the male's eye cere.
