If your little girl is also domanant or clearflight pied which seems likely since she has so little markings, all it would take was for a small pied spot to cover that area in addition to the recessive gene that probably took most of the color already

Dark eyed clears also have all white cheek patches too

Im not even 100% sure she has recessive pied her mom has a 50/50 chance to be split to it, I only bred her dads parents 2 times and never got any recessive pied - but that doesn't mean anything specially if only one of them were split to it

I did find a mutation I've never heard of that sort of resembles her but i can't find any pictures just the description for it

the only thing that really doesn't match is the feet - and she has markings but that is because she has other mutations mixed in

this is what it says

The buttercup yellow of the mask extending over the frontal and crown, to merge with the very faintly discernible undulations at the back of the head. The frontal and crown should be clear and free from all markings.
