Default What mutation is this budgie?

Sorry for the pics. I know they are not the greatest. But hopefully someone can help me out. I am curious to know what the genetics and mutation are for this budgie. It is so pretty!!

He is the white and grey one with the yellow face. The body really does seem to be more grey than violet or sky. I have kept the other birds in the pics for comparison of colours. It is not really shown in the pictures, but his tail is completely white.

Thanks for any help!!

He's definitely a yellow face type I or II, probably II (you see the yellow tinge in the wings?) mauve or grey... I'm thinking spangle. Gorgeous bird

Thanks everyone!!! Very helpful!

Just to clarify - he's not mine (yet!), but I am thinking about getting him. We will see how it goes, there are some logistics involved (travel), so <shrug> we will wait and see.

Oh and Cailin - I think you had a very good guess!! never give up trying. The more you try, the more you will learn. And as I heard it somewhere on these forums - "Sometimes we learn more from our mistakes, than from what we get right.".... now if only I could remember who said that!
