SO, if all goes well, I should be picking up one of these beauties Saturday. Fingers crossed. Apparently these aren't all the same bird.
I've really been working hard on learning all the colors and mutations, but I'm just not positive about these pretty babies. Any thoughts? I'll definitely be sharing more/better pictures if I end up bringing one home.
They are all beautiful. But I agree with Deb, I love the first one. I don't know if it's just the photo but it looks like something might be wrong with the foot of the third one (on our left side of the picture.)
Thanks guys! I'm loving the pastel yellow and violet! I too like the first the best, though I think a lot of it may be lighting. I believe they are all basically the same color.
Squirt, I hadn't noticed the odd look to the foot until you mentioned it, but I definitely see it now. Thanks for the heads up - I'll be sure tho check that out tomorrow. I think that if I understood correctly there is only one left so I'm preparing myself to say no thanks if it's not the right bird for me.
Thank you so much guys! I'm off here shortly to check her/him out. Hopefully I'll be returning with one of these beautiful babies. You would think I could recognize a spangle Greywing by now as I already have one. I'm obviously attracted to them! I'm just loving the violet/mauve yellow face - reminds me of an Easter egg and they are apparently very, very sweet.
Well, I got her. At least I think it's a her. I've gotten better, but I'm not positive on this one. She's just darling and so sweet and cute. She's half exhibition type and half wild type and already bigger than any of my others. I took pictures in natural light so hopefully you guys can tell me for sure if she's a she and if Allie was correct about a violet cobalt (or mauve) spangle greywing yellowface II. Boy, that's a mouthful!! I took a ton more pictures if there's anything anyone needs to see better.
Still working on a name, but I'm in love!
She looks in real life more violet cobalt and not really mauve, but she seems to look darker in most of the pictures. I'm fairly certain she's the first bird in the pictures above.
