Question what type of budgie is 'Nana?

Yesterday I brought home this beautiful budgie that I named 'Nana (Banana). I was wondering if someone would mind helping me out with what type of budgie she is.
But before you reply, I just want to ask that when you tell me each different character that she is, that you would tell me how you know so that I can practice myself too .
And also, could you please tell me hoe sure you are (i'm certain, i'm sure, or i'm guessing). Thank you so much for taking the time to help me! Here are the photos of my gorgeous girl (let me know if you need to see a photo from a different angle) :

I agree with Cara, she is a light green opaline cinnamon recessive pied

Here are some links to help with identification

Yay!! I almost got it right! I missed the hints of green in the wings though. Is that the only way to tell opaline in RP or is there some other sign? I LOVE recessive pieds!!! My Owl is a blue RP opaline too and she has little "clouds" of blue and grey on her neck. I love them!!

I concur wholeheartedly! She's a very pretty opaline lime green cinnamon recessive pied!

You can tell she's an opaline because the body colour seeps into the wing feathers creating a parabola-shaped area of diluted or absent markings. For recessive pieds, it can be kind of tricky to discern opaline markings from normal ones since the amount head stripes vary from budgie to budgie.

Telling which colour she is is fairly simple, she's a lime/light green because there are no dark factors and just looks lighter than a budgie with one or two dark factors (dark green and olive green respectively).

You can tell she's a cinnamon because the wing and head markings are brown and she doesn't have red eyes (which eliminates fallow and lacewing).

Recessive pieds are relatively easy to identify. They have mostly yellow or white feathers with body colour usually only found on the rump and lower belly. Sometimes they have lots of wing markings, other times they have very little or none. Recessive pieds always have dark eyes with no iris rings, no matter how old they are.

That's pretty much all there is to it. I hope I helped!

The added color is something to watch out for, although poorly marked normal recessive pieds can have the same thing Look for the barring on the head and neck to be a bit lighter and less even. They often, but not always, have a more noticeable V area on the back of their neck like an opaline would, and they have the larger area of white on their primaries like a normal opaline would too https://cutelittlebirdiesaviary.weebl...r-opaline.html
