NO, this is not normal, and you'll have to separate them into two cages before he starts to bring blood. What this means is that they are not getting along, and he could severely injure or kill the female, so do not delay taking her out of the cage.

She could also have an infection as birds will attack other birds who are sick as this is nature's way of eliminating injured or sick birds who could bring predators.

You may wish to have both your birds examined by an avian vet if it's been more than a year since their last exam because if one has an infection, so does the other.
