Hello, I’d like some help making sure of this little guy’s gender before coming up with a name for them. Any info on their color would also be greatly appreciated

What an absolutely beautiful little girl

She's a sky blue yellow face II cinnamon opaline budgie, and is indeed a little girl

I can't wait to see more of her!

StarlingWings, Would you share the key points you used to determine this bird's color from her photo? I've been working on getting educated on colors. The yellow head is see, don't get the opaline. Also the brown vs gray for a cinnamon isn't obvious to me. This is a gorgeous little girl! Thanks.

Of course

Cinnamon always has a brownish cast to it, it can be hard to tell but at least on my screen I can clearly see a brownish tint to the feathers. I admit that I could be misled by the lighting but i'm relatively sure it's cinnamon vs. greywing. You can compare it to a greywing opaline budgie for context (Credit to Google images):

And here's this little one again for context:



In an opaline marked budgie, the body color is diffused through the wings, and the saddle (area between the shoulders) is usually largely free of the heavy, markings seen in normal budgies. Additionally, there is a white stripe in the flight feathers (not obvious here but a hallmark of opaline budgies in general), and the body color is diluted.

Here's a non-cinnamon opaline vs. a normal budgie for context (Credit to google images):

Opaline:


Non-opaline:


Finally to clarify note that cinnamon (and greywing) also dilutes the body color so the opaline budgie you see above has a darker body color than the budgie in the post

I hope this helped!

Fascinating. I see the effect now of opaline on the shoulders in those two examples. And I see the cinnamon brown vs grey a toward the end of the wing feathers. Very subtle. So many variations. Thanks for the clarification!
