Can anybody tell whether this is a male or female cockatiel??

Is it a mutation of some sort?

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Your Cockatiel is a male. His mutation is called a Whiteface.

Below is a photo of a (MALE) Whiteface.

Thanks for your quick replies! I was thinking about getting a female cockatiel, and a guy was selling this one on Craigslist. He said it was a female, and he said the "bird man" who sold it to him said it was female. But I was thinking with whitefaces maybe you couldn't tell. I don't think he was lying, I think maybe he had just been misled. I also asked how old the bird was (5 years) and whether "she" had ever laid an egg (no). He answered all my questions and didn't seem upset when I told him I thought I would keep looking...
