I can't open the photos but the answer is the in adults, the sexes look the same with neither having a yellow face. HANZAB mentions only sex difference is that females may be smaller than males. Honeyeaters often have their face stained yellow from pollen. So my guess is it is that. If you have a pair, statistical likelihood is one is female and one male.
