Smile Hello! We're new here...

My first post. I've been enjoying looking at everyone's photos, there sure are some beautiful budgies here on the forum!

I've always had a bird or two since I was a kid (I am now retired)... budgies, lovebirds, cockatiels, finches. Have always loved the budgie's sweet and silly nature. After many years of owning lovebirds and Society finches (I currently have four Societies), I recently went out and looked around at budgies, and saw this little guy (will try to add a photo) and fell in love with him. So, everyone, meet Frostie.

He's settling in well, and is already exploring his new home (the cage, have not let him out yet). I have a question... I am very curious what his coloration is called? I've been reading a lot online, and I am wondering if I am right in thinking he is either a lacewing or a spangle? Although, I will admit (ha) that I am not quite sure what the difference is between spangle and lacewing. I "think" he is a sky blue dilute (please correct me if I am wrong), and he would be also be called a greywing. Anyway, I am hoping to learn a lot more here, so please feel free to correct me if I am wrong, and let me know your thoughts. There are so many gorgeous colors and variations, I have a lot to learn. I hope the photo shows up for everyone, I'm not sure if I did it right.

Welcome to the forum.

Frostie is absolutely beautiful. I am utterly clueless about mutations but we have several members and staff who are wonderful with this and I'm sure someone can confirm what mutation Frostie is soon.

I look forward to seeing more of Frostie as he settles in.
Also, there is a 'Other Birds' section, in case you wanted to share pictures of your finches.

Thanks Therm!

I love taking pictures, so I'll be posting more for sure... I'm a shutterbug, ha! I always take more pictures than I need. I'll have to check out the "Other Birds" section.

Hello, to the forum! I love little Frostie, he is adorable. We have some mutation experts on here that will help with his mutation. I am by no means an expert but I don't think he's a lacewing or spangle. His markings don't look cinnamon to be counted as a lacewing nor do they look spangle Mutations can be tricky since not all of them are expressed nor are they always cut and dry. I agree he is a dilute, and looks greywing. I think he could be a sky blue dilute but he looks a little violet from the picture showing up on my screen, so could be a violet dilute. I'm sure someone will tell you for sure If you haven't found this already, this website is fantastic for identifying mutations Budgie Mutation And Color Guide - Cute Little Birdies Aviary

I do hope we'll be seeing more of you and Frostie around the forums!

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.
